DIY New Shed Build – I need a Concrete floor!

DIY New Shed Build – I need a Concrete floor!

With the old shed demolished I needed to set about making a new floor and it had to be concrete, queue the time lapse!

Channel Page:

I decided on a concrete floor as I had 200kg of new tool chests to go in there without any tools in them and I didn’t want any flex in a wood floor. There was an existing concrete base but it wasn’t level so having never laid a brick before in my life I watched a few youtube videos and set to work. I bought a £10 set of trowels on ebay which were brilliant and used ready prepared bags of mortar, a little more expensive but gave me a consistent mix.

I laid the initial bricks to a string line and then went from there armed with a £10 ebay special one metre long spirit level.

I used engineering bricks as they only take in 7% moisture and are tough as anything, they resist frost damage very well and being flat faced it made it a bit easier to lay them.

You did good on the brick work, and cement work.

So far so good Mark.

Nice, it would be great to see some more progress updates, I too built myself a new shed earlier this year, it all takes such a long time to do when you are doing everything yourself.

Awesome work! Are you going to do more videos like this soon?
