2, Shed needed

By 1991 I had started constructing my shed/workshop, the most important thing to be found in a blokes backyard. The hardwood for the wall frames and roof purlins was accumulated over a prolonged period from leftover roofing materials. These surplus sticks were consigned to the tip when sites were cleaned by a large house building contractor with whom I was working for at the time.
The old rail vehicle is an ex Victorian railways refrigerated (by ice)"T" wagon number 161. This "shed" was purchased by my parents from the Ballarat workshops in about 1975/6, it resided at their property at Torquay until 1990 when we relocated it to "my place"
