Warehouse Re-Vamp
« on: March 18, 2017, 03:54:55 PM »
As a few know the warehouse is our shed................well Log Cabin really.

We have been looking for new plastic storage boxes for a while and trying to work
out the correct sizes etc. It's been a bit of a worry really and we are ordering the
new boxes Monday and still not 100% sure we have all the correct sizes.

Some of the cardboard boxes we have at the moment have 4 different size balloons
in and we have to pull half the box out to find the correct product.
For the odd occasion that is not too bad but many times a day gets a little frustrating.

We are hoping to get every product into it's own separate box and also move things about,
take out the wall units and fingers crossed have room for some new items we do not
stock at the moment. That is the plan, so went to get some new insulation for around the
walls and also to cover the window and door glass. It will be a lot darker inside and I expect to
have to install an extra strip light but it will help to keep the balloons fresh with no natural light
and the insulation to keep the warmth out, not in as so many think.

So as usual I thought I'd document this momentous occasion, well to us it is.
Well possibly to me it is.

Then from the end of the warehouse, makes me smile calling it a warehouse.
The cupboards are going so the new storage boxes will go up much higher.

Yesterday we emptied out the wall units, all the boxes are now pro tem up in my loft/study.
I then painted the hardboard to fit into the glass of windows and doors and fitted them all in.
It's pretty dark in the warehouse now.

The natural light source has been stopped.

I expect we may be having some sale items as once clearing the warehouse out it's surprising what one might find.
Off to take a picture of some floor pumps that we need to get rid off.

I'm sure we will find numerous things we will be surprised about and having a few sale items
with over stocked items or dis-continued lines we wish to get rid off.

I have two battery operated pumps, neither work and only one charger.
If anyone is electronically minded and wanted to get them working then they could keep one and I would have the other back.

If you are going to be spending a lot of time without natural light, and looking at colours too, high CRI LED lights would be much nicer and easier to work under than ordinary strip light. High CRI flourescent bulbs sold for photography might be an option too.

I started to clear the isles today so we can walk around a little easier
and make it easier to move the boxes into the new configuration.

It has not been this clear for years, I mentioned this to Lyn and she said yes
you can walk around the shed but you cant walk about indoors.

We have moved a few things indoors and then half way through clearing the isles there was
a knock on the front door and it was the new boxes arriving that were booked in for a Friday delivery.

This is just 70 of the 400 we have ordered, they are being delivered in stages.
These are the larger of the boxes we have ordered.

This is how we finished up yesterday.
All the insulation added to the front wall section, it was double thick in front of the window.
I was pleased with cutting the top section around the joist and at an angle for the roof.

It was great this morning picking the orders, so nice to have room to walk around
and not have to keep moving stuff out the way  :)

We started to take the front middle section out today.

Had to take a lot of product outside so we could move about, glad it was not raining and
fingers crossed it will be dry tomorrow so we can take more of the boxes outside.
Gives us a little room to manoeuvre inside.

Then started to place in the new storage boxes
