/ Anyone built a free standing boulder cave?
Anyone done the same? Carpenters - any idea whether this would work? The shed is flimsy so cannot be used as a supporting framework.
Ta for advice.
If you can find some of my pics in the gallery I posted some of my wall but they focused on the back wall that hangs of an adjustable chain (think its posted under indoor walls).. I can take some more of the actual frame if it helps.
If you have the cash, this wouldn't be a major job for a joiner.
I like the look of your wall btw!
You could reinforce the shed first.
Just screwing sheets of plywood in to make your shed double skinned (I'm guessing at how it is) would make it a lot stronger. You could also double up on and/or cross brace some of the uprights etc.
I suppose that's a bit similar to just tying you free standing structure into the structure of the shed.
To maximise space I was hoping to remove the current roof supports so the shed would have to be tied into the new frame with the roof resting on it so in effect I'd be doing what you suggest in a way.
yes, i built a scaffoling frame then attached ply to it, all it cost the sheets of wood the poles and clamps were free from various scaffold companys. i think i used over 100m of poles.
Have a look at the picture in my profile.
Then I hurt my shoulder and lost interest.
But I suppose you could adapt it to fit into a shed (and if it's anything like my shed, one move off the lawn mower would have you at the top.)
