Out Building IdeaSubmitted by charleswood on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 17:19
I need a shed, and I don't have much money for it, so I been dreaming about how to do it cheap.
My resources are free sand/gravel, existing form wood, and basically nothing else but a few pieces of worthless paper.
Tools: Concrete mixer (of various ways), hopper gun for drywall, and normal stuff.
So this is the idea... 4x8' slab, 14" on egde x 8", then 6" in center. $40 in cement.
Roll of plastic: 12' wide $10
Cut and tape together a perimeter run of the plastic so it's 24' circum x 12 tall tube. Tie up one end. Inflate with shop vac after attached to foundation via duct tape and back fill. Apply paper mache - enough to hold shape, let dry.
Cut open access hole, and use hopper to spray mortar inside, a couple days, thin layers.
Then go outside and go crazy spraying mortar (cement/sand) on the outside till it's bomb proof (4") or so.
It will start rectangular then go bubble look, but I just need something tough to hold my tools outside of the house. The dog has been complaining about the tools all over the house.
Think that plan will work?
