Wow - your shed build looks great

Any suggestions from anyone please

Well we have life in the new shack.
Power ready for the big move.New shack on the way. - Page 2 S2912
New shack on the way. - Page 2 S2810
Must do a better job on the red/black well blue at the moment but going to print out some red/black discs on sticky back paper to tidy that bit up.
Connecting cable is the same as used on a cooker so should be enough ??.

Well done with all your hard work there Alan. New shack on the way. - Page 2 1f44d 

Been really great seeing your shack all come together and once those radios are in there it'll all come to life.
You could do a line from my namesake 'Victor Frankenstein' as his monster rises with "It's Alive! It's Alive!". Very Happy

Wouldn't worry about details like the power supply.....it's only you that needs to know. (Does make for a nicer QRZ picture though.)

I know what you're currently missing......he says as the kettle pops off and reaches into the mini fridge to make yet another brew.... Wink


Mind you, I had to dig past crap that I've accumulated and a couple of handhelds radios to get to the fridge!!


Well done mate, you should be suitably proud and looking forward to the final touches such as radio(s) installation.

Study the top picture.
Under the monitor in use you can see a red looking object ?.
That is Alexa i just ask her for a coffee and Linda pops in the door not long after with a mug in her hand lol.
She would tip it over me if i did that but i do have this thing of calling her on it and asking her if she want's a brew it works better than asking for one for me and a lot safer.
Might just put the old tassimo machine in there.

Ah, you lucky sod. New shack on the way. - Page 2 1f44d 

My Teresa is a bit of a camel when it comes to water intake only having a cuppa in the morning and one when she gets home from work.......and I make both of those buggers! Very Happy

I need the fridge and kettle for my own daily 20 cup habit. Wink
(Plus they're both in arms reach which is handy for the old leg.....til I need to empty!)

I've got an Alexa in the shack and one down stairs and only made the mistake of calling downstairs on it once. Rolling Eyes
