Good move on strengthening those spring hangers. I should have done that on my Miniart truck , might have stopped the front axle collapse.

Hi all , having asked if anyone was interested in my reburbishment and Tim said he was, here we go .

The concrete slab sided building was last altered years ago from a garden shed to a workshop, I moved out of there into a large industrial unit soon after. It then became part store and office. Now I can rearrange the whole thing and make a comfortable warm cave.

The roof is fibreglass , a fantastic material , strong and waterproof, unlike part of the floor which prompted all this ripping out lark.

This is where I 'm at the present , old damaged flooring sheet s up, new damp sheet down, subfloor timbers and new Sterling board in. Brick end with PDC . The flooring sheet has been taken over the brickwork and behind the replacement timber end frame.This will be covered in shiplap cladding in due course when I can then tackle the double glazed lights as well.





Some good 50 mm insulation in to the frame area, the flooring sheet is now under this and back on the outside.Not much expected to happen tomorrow as another trip with my son in law to Addenbrooks , yes another check up.!!

Thanks for looking in on the 1/1 , you should see the size of the glue bottle.teeth 2
