      Hi, thanks for your reply, was helpful.

      One of my potential options for hanging the bag is to bolt a vertical 4x4 to a shed made of single course of concrete block, then fix a 4x4 arm off the vertical beam (in a cantilever fashion) - not at 90 degrees but more like 120 degrees to clear the soffit and fascia and extend out far enough to give me 2.5 metres height from the ground to fit a 5ft bag in. Then underneath that arm fit a 4x4 support at more of an angle... like a hangman frame if you know what I mean... Think this is quite elaborate really and not sure if shed can take 60kg bag...

      Another option is to sink a 4x4 or 6x6 into dirt about 3 feet or so (?) with postcrete and make a 90 degree hangman structure with similar supports and even another diagonal support coming off the back of the vertical beam and sunk into the ground.

      Which do you think is the better option, or is neither feasible? Do you think shed can handle weight/force?

      Has your structure held up well, presuming you've gave the bag some good beatings?

      Sorry for waffling on...

      Cheers

      Hi, I have a similar issue in regards to installing a punch bag in my garden using similar methods to you (from reading your original post), and was wondering, if it's not too much bother, if you could give me some info & pics as to how you fixed it.

      Many thanks
