Welcome back Andy. Glad you're settling in after the trauma of moving. It's good to see a picture of Seven Mills Sidings again, RMweb has been very quiet without you and I've missed my morning catch up. Looking forward to watching your progress now. All the very best to you both. Keep safe. Trevor

Morning all, a quick pic before my morning walk and then some brekkie.

 

It's a busy day in the POD again today with my Step Son and Son in Law both in attendance.

 

Back later.:good:

Nice to have you back as the place hasn't been the same without you.

Look forward to future adventures from Amp Sher.

So which has been your favourites?

No prizes, I'd just like to hear your thoughts, obviously O Gaugers will probably vote for an O Gauge Layout, Steam buffs will favour some Steam inspired ones, and Modern Image guys and Gals will go for the likes of New Mills etc.

So please give me YOUR feedback, it may lead to the inspiration for another project.:D

hope all is well

In terms of inspiration, I always thought the dmu depot at Reading was crying out for a minimum space garage O set up. Bubble car heaven.

 

Welcome back!

Hi Andy

Good to see you back, I can sympathise with the mowing issue, but at least the weather at the moment is not conducive to mowing! :D
Hope your garage conversion goes well.

Yes Andy I gained a little more leisure time by using the gardening skills of the partner of one of my wife's ex-work colleagues.   Mainly for de-weeding, lawn cutting, hedge trimming and flower bed tidy ups.  It has given us much more fun time to deal with the containers etc.  :(     

They have all the kit for the many gardening jobs that are required and of course I also get to work in my hobby cabin plenty more. ;) 

 Looking down the garden from the hobby cabin back towards the house

So a couple of earlier pics of the Garage to POD conversion. 

 

The inner brickwork for the door was cut out and the disk cutter was used for a clean cut on the outside.

Guess who had to do the labouring and move the rubble out to the Biffo Bags,:)

I know why the door goes to outside: “I’m just going out for a walk . . .”

Hi Andy, this is all looking really good.

 

How do you find the LED lights? I am thinking of having these.

 

Cheers, Ade.

So far looking very good, these are not as bright as Jeff's or Big Johns but these are the Daylight ones, so a more natural lighting feel, Ade.
