    Main image

    The old concrete foundations and floor slab near the entry to the MenzShed site is now just a memory thanks to Goodman Contractors who arrived with a digger and truck and tore up the old concrete and carted it away. With the garage nearing completion, the building team at the Shed can now begin the setting out of the foundations for the new amenities building.

    Main image

    The small team of the outdoor blokes at the Shed have done a great job of turning the wilderness and dump area at the rear of the MenzShed site into a park like setting with the landscaping, retaining walls and terrific garden boxes. Their green fingers turn out great supplies of fresh vegetables with good quantities going to the Kapiti Food Bank.

  • Garage nearing completion     11 June 2019
    Main image

    The guys building the garage have continued with their work and all the external cladding is completed with just some flashings and corner trim to complete. The roller doors were installed end May 2019 and most of the internal lining and bracing is complete. Just awaiting some mains entry cable to put up thru the wall to get the last sheet of internal ply on the wall. The guys building the garage are enjoying their dedicated work area and do not have to compete with the other 30 to 40 guys across the other side of the yard for their workshop space.

    The construction of the garage has made good progress with the small team of Shed members lead by Murray with his regular experienced hands of Brent and Brian with others also lending a hand. Once all the framework and roof structure was completed, the great guys from Hurricane Roofing rolled up and put the roof on for us. Many thanks to JD and his team.

    The early days with the luxury of an on site toilet (a builder's site toilet). Still in much demand today awaiting the construction of the new amenities building.

    More early days at the shed when we got access to the 3 bay concrete shed. Plenty of activity before the veranda was built.

    One of the early social gatherings at the Shed - no meeting room available for this lot - very pleasant on a fine summer day but not so good on cooler winter days.
