Well done Keith,
Some stunning work done there, as you say kit bashing or whatever.
You should feel very pleased and proud of your work, given me some ideas for my shed too.
Thanks for sharing your pictures and ideas.

ATB,

Ian :mrgreen:

Hi Alan

I'll take atmospheric..... but the intention was to see a bit more of the surroundings... probably should have waited until I'd got the yard lamps wired in as well.... which I will do, once I remember in which box under the layout I put them....and there are a lot of boxes. My strategy seems to be when I see something I could use on the layout, I buy it... and put it in a box... It isn't the best strategy in the world, but is in line with the Miuayga technique....

Keith

Hi Ian

I'm pleased to have been of some help. I'm a big fan of these Wills panels, I've used them for retaining walls on the cutting down to the fiddle yard and also at Woodside. The original was a mixture of rockface and stone topped with a brick wall, so I used the stone paanels with the brick, overall it looks OK, after weathering as with the good shed. You can see the Woodside wall behind the type  4 in photo in the Gallery.... must get something taken for the cutting, which uses brick panels with buttresses, check the gallery in a few weeks. I've also used Wills Brick Retaining Arches for the opposite side of the cutting, and at Woodside, under the roof. You can produce quite a length of retaining wall for not a lot of pennies.

Keith

Hey Matt... you've got to appreciate I'm very new to this Forum business, so who's back, you or me?? Still trying to guess what BTW stands for.... mobile phones and texting and all these abbreviations have passed us by.. we have to drive about four miles to get a reliable signal, so we never bothered. Our broadband is via satellite.. we were promised superfast broadband by April of this year....now it looks like next year...

I need to go for a lie down now...all this technology is too much for me

Keith

...is it By The Way...we lived on Mull for 14 years, by the way.

Hi Keith,

BTW means by the way. Matt is also referring to myself ..... Toto. It seems like we suffer from the same affliction ........... If we see something we like ......... We buy it ....... Whether or not we have an imminent requirement for it:mutley

Anyway, your photo's are great and you've made an admirable job of the shed. Whilst you wait to find the box with the additional lighting fixings in it .......... Try upping the ISO of your camera setting a bit and it will throw a bit more light on the subject. If you do it in slight increases, it will still be able to retain the night time look but more detail will be revealed.

Looking good anyway

Cheers

Toto

Hi Toto

Been fixing the roof while the sun was shining - that's the house roof, and includes the section covering the loft... so an important job... and just in time after ther rain we've just had.

Now then, I'm sure you're correct about the ISA setting - wouldn't be a problem with my old camera (used film - rmember that?)... but now I'm using a digital thingy... and I can manage the point and click mode... but every now and then I catch one, or more, of the many buttons - which gies me a complex display of info which means very little to me... when I've got time, I'll try the manual....once I find it.... This Windows 8 seems to have a facility to lighten photos in the Photos Library... came across it by accident last week... if I can remember how I did it, I'll have another look.

I'll be finishing the last section of baseboard next, over the approach to the storage loops,  but I may just run the layout for a while first - just to check the last few hours of the timetable. Must put a couple more photos in the Gallery as well.

Keith
