Dimming and masking another LED light

Standard

Crawling back in from the gardening that’s been so needed this last week or so, I finally got around to dimming the tilley style lamp in the second attic/loft space.

This space

Slotted in place – an odd shaped room box as the second half of the box room

Though a rather bilious yellow, painting the lamp casing has reduced the glare. I have been dabbing the paint on the bulbs in other over-bright lights but haven’t managed to get in to where the bulb is yet in this lamp.
Have also added a little more red to this side of the space with a non-working lamp and used it to mask some of the LED tilley.

Need to get back to what is left of the garden.  It’s all burnt out and am trying to rescue various plants in the hope that when we eventually get back to some rain, they’ll still be usable one way or another.  Have had them in buckets and bowls of water and now am trying to build up the moisture holding capacity of the soil so they can go back in asap.

(Was just hunting out a link to a definition of asap when came across these, I don’t know if you’ve seen them before?  Who knew there was such a variety of possibilities these days?.)

 

Box room or room box

Standard

Lots of bits done but a little hard to describe.

In the belief that it would make more sense if I work from the end result here is one of the more complete bits I’ve been working on.

The first attic space, the one with the wardrobe and wireless, has a bit chopped off because of the slice of house.
This remaining section I’ve sort of dedicated to memorabilia, such as ration books, helmets and the no longer needed cot.

The riddle goes as follows

Now, one could say that this is what used to be described as a box room but, because I’ve still got an itch to be able to get at some of the hard-wired electrics, I’ve also made it as a slot in room box.  I chose this way of doing it rather than creating a removable section in the roof slope to get access.

The slot-in spot

Once I’ve checked again and doubled checked once more, I’m heading towards sticking down the roof slope over it, hoping to get it to match the half of front slope already in place.

Between times, if my never won’t let me glue down that piece of roof yet, I’ve the other attic space, through the doorway, to decorate and dress.  Plenty to nibble on.
