Have you got a shot of what the shed area will look like, i.e. have you got a design for the shed yet or are you pondering a scratch build?


I visited the site in Feb 2005, Foster Yeoman were great and organised a tour round for me and my Dad (pictured as scale) when I told them what I was planning to do. I have about 250 photos, but these should give you an idea of where I'm coming from.

As you can see, the scale of this whole place is immense, so I'm working on an artistic license with this and now have much less space than I had in the loft at the old place which makes it even harder. Maybe I should move outside? Hey Tim?

I intend to scratch build the shed on an artistic basis, as you see I only have 2 lines into mine already so thats a compromise before I start.

I'm actually a bit further on now with the mod-rocking so will post some more pics soon.

Best looking layout yet by far, and the bloke standing by the door looks so real. Well done, keep up the good work.

Thanks for the pix Mark. It's all a lot clearer now and I'm particularly intrigued by the confusion caused by reference to a beaver. Though I'm not so sure you should be getting any at your age Mathew!

Look forward to more updates Mark

Cheers
