The workshop constructon continues,
Firstly I must thank all the LJs for their comments, I was a bit humbled by it all when I read them it was then I realised it was possibly a project that those our age group love doing,.... along with parents too!
So a very warm Thank You to all.
The material I used were bits of off cuts “just lying about” so there was no real initial timber outlay involved
The roof Masonite, the roof trim, bits of hardwood.
The walls and base, MDF, the intermedite floor MDF and timber joists.
Furniture and fittings.
The bed some recycled untensil drawers hence the green felt lining.
The ladder pine and bamboo skewers (liberated from Aurora’s Kitchen) for the rails and the Fluro tubes.
The TV MDF and a small bit of dowel
The overall dimensions were based on Rockys hand gestured measurements with added comment about this big and this high, so I was working with very precise tolerances.
The frame work:
The frame work I cut out all the pieces and dry assembled them.
As the intermediate floor slides out from the walls I cut rebates in the wall before assembly
The windows I used a pre exising template I had and my router to produce them.
The gutter at the back was cut on the table saw in one length then the ends attached, the down pipes were cut to length then glued up before fitting.
The drain pipes do not actually work so any water caught in the gutter will collect there
Then once I have everything assembled it was time for painting.
I undercoated the basic structure and some of the fittings.
The intermediate floor, workbench and bed were spray canned estapol.
On the plan is a colour scheme so its off to the paint shop to buy some paint.
