Decide where to start and get started

There are so many flat pieces needing prep that flat surfaces are essential – in order to keep the pieces flat once cut.  Fortunately, since the main building is out of the Potting Shed, I’ve managed to stuff in a couple of second-hand tables so can spread out and make a mess over a larger area.

Surface for sawing and painting, surface for cutting and sticking and I’m using the kitchen for bricklaying too

Corners that float unattached

Never a wise move but I do seem to have opted for it anyway

Highlighting the walls

  • Red still to do
  • Blue or blue outline are/will be removable for viewing
  • Green in progress

Working steadily on the bottom left corner and squaring up as best as possible before completing long central horizontal and fixing in.  This’ll take some time as both sides of the long wall need to be fancied up at ground floor level before the party walls can be introduced.  But up in the loft only the one side of the central wall needs to be decorated, the other side being the lighting box.  Viewing and lighting access up there will be via removable roof/slopes.

So far concentrating on root store walls and décor including its party-wall with the buttery, whilst making sure that the earlier, experimental and removable wall fits in more or less with the newly fixed items.
