Ok guys not long now.

Managed to purchase a second hand shed today that will suit my needs to a certain degree,

Not going to be able to do BB OHP as the plates will touch the ceiling/roof.

Its a big shed.. 12ft by 15ft so im going to have to cut it down one on side to bring it into a 12x12,

The roof is a apex roof so like this >  /\  

Seeing as i need to cut one side down im thinking of raising one side so more like /````  If that makes sense..

This way i should ( fingers crossed ) be able to fit the squat rack in, either that or im going to have to cut it down... 

 

Anyway its going to be called "The Cave" as the wife keeps calling it "The Man Cave"

Progress pictures should start from the start of september....

Hey Lee, my latest incarnation of The GrindHouse sounds similar to this.
I had to put my rack together inside and I situated it so that I can do pull-ups between the rafters.
I also have to do the OHP between rafters as well

Maybe I'm thinking too far outside the box... if you have to make it smaller why can't you make it taller?
