The Formblock shed is taking shape

Since clearing the space for the shed (2007), completing the walling (2008-9) and having the slab laid (2009-10), I've been renewing the house foundations (separate posting to come!) whilst managing the domestic duties (2010-11).

Now am finally starting the formblock shed. Am laying 6 blocks a day, unless it's a the kit is manageable working solo. 60 ml of oxide for colouring. Blocks are 7:1 washed quartz sand, cement.

Hi Nick,

Looking very good. You seem to be having no trouble grasping the concept.
I like the method of door frame you are using and the beveled architrave.

Cheers keep us posted.
