Engine Shed Build

Post by steamyjim » Sat Jun 27, 2020 10:02 pm

After 4 or 5 years sat half finished in the shed I've finally got around to putting a set of doors on this. Laser cut MDF shell covered in wooden stone cladding a la Peter Jones. Loosely inspired by the the Pockerly Waggonyway engine shed at Beamish. Still needs the roof tiling and a water tank mounted on the flat roof section at the rear as well as a few other details.

Those doors look great, top selection of timber too. Whole building looks good as well.

I'm forever scrounging handy off cuts from a friend who does a lot of large carpentry - his bin has all sorts of useful sized bits for this sort of stuff!

A bit more progress today between working on other bits of the line - fitted the windows and the edging around the roof.
