It is done.

Hello Friends and Followers.

We have been busy in the railway room today. I am actually amazed at how well we have done with building this room ourselves. I am pretty useful with a power tool, but Keith is the one who is good with measurements and how things should fit together.
Yesterday we put up the first two lots of the ceiling, which was the tricky part because we had to work around the stand.
This morning it was full steam ahead with the next section and then we were left with one bit to do.
By lunchtime we just had the one section to put in. So we stopped for lunch and a coffee.
In not time at all after lunch the final piece of the ceiling jigsaw was in place. It was then the big tidy up ready for the next stage of the big build which is the bulkhead against the mast. We both tidied and hoovered to get rid of the mess we had made, so tomorrow we will have a nice clear space to begin the bulkhead.

Pop back soon x

  1. Stuff the train set. That area would make a great handicraft room and extended saloon! You could install a ceiling mounted TV projector :-)

  2. I'm enjoying following your railway room creation, it is coming along nicely. I have a question (hope it doesn't sound dumb!), how do you stop any condensation/water ingress between the sheeting and the wooden boards?
    Sorry if it is a stupid question!

    1. Hi Alison.
      We have put insulation behind all the boards and so far it is working a treat. We have also insulated under the gunwales, which was my idea as they were condensating and it is also working. As a back up in case the sheeting should leak we are going to put guttering undr the gunwales to stop any water falling on the layout. It was not a stupid question at all.

  3. Hiya Tom and Jan. Now of course I have thought of that, but Keith and I are looking forward to playing trains. I will be able to do my cards in there as well. x
