Description of Jelle

In our shed I made three shelves in the back and insulated the side walls and covered them with hardboard with holes so that tools can be hung.

How I made this project

First I measured the shed carefully and had the planks cut to size so that they would fit properly. I still had to cut a small corner for the post, which I did myself. I then attached iron supports to the existing posts at the same height on which I attached the beams. The planks were placed on top of this, the beams must ensure that everything does not sag too much. All in all, it is a sturdy construction and I think it looks quite nice. I put glass wool between the existing beams of the shed, which you can easily cut to the right size with a knife. I used hardboard with holes to cover it. These were shortened slightly so that two of them fit exactly in terms of height. I am going to attach a slat to this to hang the heavier things, but light items can be hung directly on this.

Dimensions of my DIY project

The shelves are 190.0 cm wide and 39.0 cm deep. The side walls are 239.0 cm.
