A while ago hubby donated a shed to the cause:

As you can see its not big enough to swing a cat, and at the moment is for storage and water making.

I have 2 x 4' tanks (one of which is in the shed) 1 x 3' tanks and 2 x 2' tanks (one in the shed and one in my office) I bought them off an old man in the village for 60.

The other day we took delivery of this:

Its 34' long and 10' wide. It is currently parked on our driveway (much to our neighbours delight) Once the farmer has harvested his crop we will be towing it around the back and into our garden. Half of it is to be mine, the other half is to be hubbys.

Everything from the single door back, is mine - the bedrooms and bathroom. We will build a wall to seperate us, and will gut the inside. I may keep the bedroom with the buks as a culture room and storage room

Potential culture room:

It has all its electrical fitting in place and uses gas for heating.

SOOOO excited

Are you going to put it on bricks and will the floor support the weight? I have seen a LFS which is in a Portakabin, but never something potentially so weighty in a caravan. Should be good though :).

Yeh thats the plan, I haven't seen the underside, but hubby assures me it will hold the weight.
