Bids are now open for North Island College’s Great Shed Auction in the Comox Valley – a great way to support future NIC trades students and store your garden or work tools this winter.
“The students put a lot of hard work into these projects and these sheds are now looking for their forever homes,” said Cheryl O’Connell, NIC’s dean of trades and technical programs. “This is a chance to get a high-quality, well-built storage or work shed for your yard while supporting local students.”
The sheds are identical at eight feet wide by eight feet long. They are built to code with a finished and primed exterior, including rain screening. The interior is unfinished so you can customize it to your needs.
The starting bid for each shed is $1,500, to reflect students’ skills and construction materials.
“Each shed is a great example of the foundation work students learn in the program,” noted O’Connell. “It brings together floor, wall and roof construction, window and door framing and exterior finishing work in one project.”
Bidding closes Friday, Oct. 5 at 4 pm.
To place your bid, email email@example.com. Both sheds will be auctioned independently as CV Shed 1 and CV Shed 2. Please indicate in your email which shed you’d like to bid on. The current bids will be updated at www.nic.bc.ca once a week.
The winning bidders will need to arrange delivery.
Trades sampler students in Campbell River also built three sheds now being auctioned off in Campbell River. View that auction at www.nic.bc.ca/life-at-nic/nic-news/news/cr-shed-auction.
