It never ceases to amaze me what people use their sheds, workshops and summer houses for. It goes without saying that general storage of gardening tools, barbecues, garden furniture, bikes and lawn mowers are the more normal usage of these versatile buildings. These sheds are also called into use as hobby buildings or retreats away from the world or ‘the other half’ (and this applies to women as well as men)
However, when I heard that someone was building an F1 (formula 1) car in his lean-to shed, this stopped me in my tracks. In all my years in the garden shed business, I have NEVER heard of anyone using a workshop for this purpose. Just to goes to show how useful the garden shed is.
Kevin Thomas, a normal (ish) man living near Brighton has been gradually building an F1 car in his garden shed, albeit more of a summerhouse, as you do (no you don’t). This crazy idea came to him after seeing an F1 car in a Renault showroom and just a little while later saw an F1 tub (monocoque) listed on eBay (what can’t you buy on this site?) When this auction ended with no bids he sent the seller an email. To his surprise, the seller turned up at his property with a Reynard BAR 01 and a BAR 003 tub. He immediately paid for both and his idea was started.
Although Thomas was not an engineer, he was a hard-core fan, his garden shed was going to be fully utilised to follow his dream. With a tub in place he set about everything else which was required such as the drivetrain, suspension, seat etc. In fact, everything required for an F1 car. He soon found that sourcing these items was tricky and it was only after checking eBay every week and trading with other F1 part collectors did he managed to collect what was needed.
His garden shed quickly became full with F1 components and the putting together of all these parts become a great challenge – but great fun. He had to learn how to work with carbon fibre and by altering the side pods was able to fit it with a BAR engine cover. Thanks to his resourcefulness it looked like he had accumulated an F1 car for just over $13,000 but he hadn’t.
He still needs a drivetrain as well as many other items and these are unlikely to show up on eBay. A 600plus hp 3.0 litre V10 engine is what’s needed but he may have to settle on a Formula Renault 3.5 litre engine. He convinced that even with this, if and when he gets his car completed, it will be more than fast enough to scare the life out of him. It is proven that a well assembled Formula 1 car can be a wieldy beast but one built from pieces, collected from all over the place, is likely to be a monster.
However, that is not the point. It’s the assembly and creation of an impossible dream in his garden shed which counts. The sheer madness, and the bliss creating this car cannot be measured. To be able to do this in his lean-to shed would certainly give him massive bragging rights and stories to tell for the rest of his life.
This just goes to show that the usefulness of a garden shed or workshop can be used for more or less anything. Admitted you would probably need a shed larger than normal and maybe a little higher than normal but you can find a large range of buildings to suit your requirements directly from 1st Choice Leisure Buildings. You will also find that Robin Antill, a partner, is a very keen F1 fan and VERY envious of his achievement.
