Danger, mind absent hands unsupervised
Kitchen offices – One up from a secure outhouse
Plans and thoughts
A reprise of the layout.
Started on the walls. To view the sections of the kitchen module a large part of the two long outer walls will be removable, so am starting with one fixed corner and one long side.
- a wood framed structure with stone and brick mix infill
- no windows but high up ventilation/lights with open weave screens
- some form of drainage here and there via gulley?
Good intentions down the drain
It wasn’t till I was cutting out the card blocking in the two windows here (brown card oblongs) that I realised …
Planned, cut and glued the main timbers for the outer face of the first removable wall then spotted that I’d totally lost the plot and stuck down a white painted card sheet (with brown backing) to represent the inner face finish.
Miffed with self
Sheesh! Half asleep as usual.
It should be something like this work in progress on the corner walling, which by the way I’d also given a smooth white finish before I ripped it off.
There’s just two walls that have unpainted waist-high stonework as in the photo, the others will have one course only of white painted stone at floor level.
What’s the fuss about pretend painted plaster v pretend painted brick and stonework? Not really a fuss in the scheme of things but so silly.
I’d already written the opening of this piece days ago about the plan and general look and yet, and yet when it came to it I seem to have totally been in a daydream and ignored the original premise that the building is like an outhouse. Just not listening to self.
Back to the building.
Ventilation in the storage rooms
Or do I mean my head.
Meanwhile whatever the wall’s covering, the idea is that the high level window shapes will be filled with wood screens of sorts. Full wood screens or just close uprights. Have tried out stained hessian that’s had some of the weave removed.
I’ll see how this dries and try to reduce the hairy look of the fabric. If I can’t sort it will use the vertical bars close together instead.
