PostSubject: New workshop coming soon!   Fri May 25, 2018 10:29 pm

If anyone notices my lack of progression with builds over the next month or so it’s due to a entirely new build!

First up is I have to decorate upstairs in the house including my eldest daughters room in preps for her little sister to move in,  so that’s new walls and flooring along with two new beds! Then onto my sons room for his overhaul I e been putting off for a year... Busy busy..
Then onto the landing and bathroom for new flooring.

Once that’s done I can finally move all the junk that’s been accumulating in our old coal shed either to the backyard Bon fire or to the kids rooms, freeing up the coal shed for my new workshop...

All brand sparky new stuff! Including new tooling to which I’ve already spent a monkey on with a decent pillar drill, 10” circular saw and sanding belt and drum machine.

I’ve yet to replace the lathe, but it’s not a priority machine as I never used my old one enough which is why I sold to start with... I may replace it should there be space but the old coal sheds not massive but is is a good size to swing 36” models about in!

But in that regard watch this space for my custom workshop build log I’m sure many would love to see a disgusting budget custom workshop build!

I thought that when we had the last two babies in the last 3 years in all honest my Mrs is really good with the kids and she frees me up some time during school runs and mid evening after dinner for me to do some modelling most days, this is a reason why I stopped doing custom builds for others tho as my free time is limited and I’ve got to a point where I’m not enjoying building something I never see again. So now I focus what little time I’m allowed to my own projects.

Most people here notice I go between projects at times and that was simply due to having an order for a boat come in and I had to put my projects down but in the last 18months I’ve gone back to focusing on my own builds and finishing my collection.

Well I’ve started the kids room today, so a couple of days to finish this job then I’ll have to start going through the coal shed and start clearing out the crap we’ve accumulated over the years that just got dumped in there.

New beds ordered for the kids, new carpet on route for the stairs...

I’m going to be sore In the morning!

As you can see I’ve been busy....

One room down and flooring in there and the landing, I’ve had to drastically change how the stairs go now as we were going to paint the stairs and add carpet treads...

As you can see by the photos the stairs would need a full overhaul if not replacing entirely to achieve that look, so instead were fitting a decent carpet up the stairs cut in a landing pad at the top with some trim to tidy it up and the Mrs wants stair rod/ tie backs to finish ( she wants a queens stair case!) so once the carpet fitters been tomorrow for a quote that will get fitted, then lastly onto my sons room for new flooring.

Once all those are done, new beds are going in and we’re moving our two babie girls In with the eldest, the Mrs and I may finally get 1 night without a baby, wouldn’t that be nice?  lol!

Workshop coming soon.... I have a shipment of power tools arriving tomorrow so lots of goodies to play with.  Very Happy

I will at some point wrap the hand rails with nylon cord similar to my long ago blog on how to do rope work, a similar wrap to the bell cord.

That would easily need a few months to sit their over the evenings and wrap the banister and rails... till then I’m going to let the wood settle and expand etc for the winter and see if it needs adjusting and decide if I still want to do that or just paint it.

I was tempted to varnish it but sadly with the rest of the old wood on the stairs without resorting to a full strip down and a ton of mess for very little payoff it really isn’t an option, the Mrs is also contemplating if she wants the living room wall removed and put back up to cover the stairs increasing the living room by an extra 4 foot in width.. ( its not a supporting wall)I have told her should it do that it won’t be for a few years since I only laid the living room floor last year.

But it wouldn’t be a hard fit to remove a section of the floor and relay with some infil planks as I still have 20 left from the upstairs job which would fix that in no time and no extra cost other than the wall.

Let’s hope she opted out of that as last time I removed a “ non supporting wall” ( as per a surveyors/builders notes) we soon found that non supporting wall was actully supporting the bath in the separate bathroom! So along with replacing the kitchen and dining room roof from the damage the the bath caused I also had to fit an 1 ton RSJ between the front to the back of the house to support everything! Never trust a builders advice huh, a job that should have been a couple 100 squid turned into a 3 grand heachach!

Good thing I was young then Very Happy

My nightmare has begun.... and it really is a nightmare given the state of the walls, it’s going to take some serious effort and work to fix some of the base building issues first before I even get to the main build...

The far wall has two major cracks one closest to the house wall isn’t so bad but the other is to the outta corner of the house and is pretty leathal, as that wall isn’t actully attached to anything but the floor foundations and I expect it’s the roof and the external wall cladding keeping it from collapsing.

I’ve just used some silicon to tidy up what remained of the crack to seal it from any draughts, I’ll now start the slow progression on building a new internal wall frame which will bolt to the wall, not only reinforcing the walls to each other but support the new roof, insulation panels and walls.
I’ve also opted to fit some sound board to the wall side wall to help reduce noise passing into the hours although the noisest machine i would run is the table saw and those you don’t just leave on for hours!

I’ve also got to run a ring main for power and lighting, which I’ll tap into the houses fuse box as we have a few spare spaces on ours for dedicated trips without effecting the rest of the house.

I also have to look at getting some levelling compound for the floor with some new floor boards to cover and fix the very bad current floor which I expect is the original foundation of this extension.

After that it’s a matter of fitting kitchen units counter top and a mod to the counter top so I can permantly fix the table saw to it, but fully retract the blade into the top and still use the surface as work area when not using the tool, I’m also looking to do a similar thing with my router so I can use that with the new table saws fence I’ll build... possibly but it’s not a priority.

Wish me luck and keep watching things are kicking off!

I've got a new workshop coming, too. This is it so far

and this is an image of what's going on there. I've a fairly good idea of what's going in there but the MOST IMPORTANT THING is that it has to be green with white window frames, door and barge boards..... By Order of Senior Domestic Management. BTW there will be none of that decking shown in the second picture - the floor bearers go straight onto the slabs.

One and a half frame up in a couple hours, you can see how uneven the room is with the new frame squared up I have gaps up to 2.5” in some places compared to the wall and there is absolulty nothing I can do about it!

Fortunately with the frame work squaring up my internal work space is so far remaining the same as per my drawn out plan, it’s not massive in walkway but no worse than a typical shed, and this is using full size 600mm kitchen units and work surface.

Few more days work on the frame and once I know what gaps I’ll have I’ll order the insulation, so between that arriving I’ll wire up the electrics and start to fit the units as they should be here Thursday, which will help me greatly come the back wall since the frame is not full height simply as the frame will bolt to the wall and the unit and counter slip under, all covered in cladding to tidy up.

I did almost opt for a shed.. one “I” ( the boss) wanted was £1200 as it’s a also a summer house... then I remembered I only needed to skip everything we trashed in the coal shed and convert it.. so far I’m up to £210 with what materials I’ve brought ( including 5 new kitchen units) and I expect another £400 ish to finish... + the £500 in new power toys still works out cheaper than the shed/summer house.
The new walls will see the internal space 4 foot wide and 12 foot ish long, to which even a shed can’t give in space for the same money.

Before I fit the rear frame I needed to work out the Exact higher of the units and work surface which has lead me down the path to pop up a couple of the units, it also allows me to check that the new frame is square and true which I’m happy to say so far is perfect.

It’s going to be a slow hog through this as I have to build parts in stages and order as I need as I simply have no where to store everything in the hose as downstairs and the kitchen look like a bomb hit it with everything else right now!

As you can see from the photos once the units are in and the bench on I have a whooping 700mm between the unit top and the new wall to work in...

It’s not a huge gap for my fat arse, and certainly not big enough to swing a cat about but it’s more than enough room to work without basing elbows against things. Sadly this is them limitation of this work space however without custom building slimmer units or bench supports to fit a slimmer work surface it’s something I’ll have to live with.

Not all bad my old mans shed is just as bad but he certainly hasn’t got the length I have not the comfort of it being part of the actual house!

Keep watching things are progresssing.

After spending two hours working out which corner wasn’t square.... and finally getting it spot on, I moved to build the back wall frame which as you can see only needs to be from the roof height down to the unit/worksurface night, the gaps behind the units will also hold insulation and yet allow me to squeeze just that little extra space as possible, it’s also fortunate the back wall is relatively level in comparison to the rest of the outhouse. It should be too as that’s the actual foundation wall to the main house so my gap around that wall so far is less then half inch at the far corner where as it’s butted hard to the wall in the other corner.

I’ll make an effort to pop the new wall up in its correct place tomorrow as right now it’s just few standing on the units with a couple of screws stopping it from falling over.

Now I did check that new wall piece also fits perfectly along the door wall so I’m now confident I’ve got the frame work as perfect and square as humanly possible, give or take literally 1mm!

Today I ordered the insulation, due to the gaps spacing I’ve opted to just buy 100mm thick loft insulation not just for the roof but to slot into the frame work, I can compress the insulation in places where the gap isn’t that deep, and allow it to press against the cladding for full thickness, I brought 3 rolls that’s covers 8m2 which should be enough to fill the walls and allow me to double up the roof cavity.
Insulation arrives Thursday, so I’ll fit the electrics once the frames up tomorrow and Sunday and re-measure for the claddding and order that either Sunday or Monday ( it’s a 4day turn around on delivery from b&q) I’ll also look to order the worksurface at the same time. Which will just leave me to do the roof purchase to which I’m still undecided if I want to go pvc, hardboard, or just some ply I can gloss, I’ll work this out again over the weekend and see what’s practical and cheap as it’s a roof after all!

Frames almost finished I’ve had to adjust a few for racking, shelfing options and bike rack support.

As for the light i brought a LAP 6 foot long batten light from screw fix for £45 which was cheaper than my original option of a standard tube light fitting and an led tube.

This ones 60w with 6000 lumen of power for a 25.000 hour life span. It’s a non replaceable bulb but it should do well for a 2-3 years before I start having issues.

Not much done today other than layout a plan for the wiring, gave me a little headache as I couldn’t fit a 3rd cable through the wall I drilled into the wall to the CU to finish a ring main, which left me with only one option to instead run a ring with the two cables I could fit through and off one of the plugs opposite the light switch fit a 3amp fused spur to power the light.

Now a lot of you may first just say... drill a bigger hole... or a 2nd hole...

Let me tell you that believe me I tried... however the house is so old it has steel/iron plating between the coal shed and the main house walls that’s 5mm thick...along with the fact I had to use a 12”masonry bit to finish the hole. That’s how thick the two walls were, I used my biggest drill bit I could to grind though to 15mm I just don’t have anything bigger, I was tempted to drill a 2nd hole and use that, however when I tell you it took me an hour to drill the first with a ton of swear words it just worked out easier to spend £1.99 on a decent spur box!

So right now I have 4 sockets in place all with the wiring ready to attach and the light switch and it’s accompanying junction ready to fit tomorrow, I also have a length of cable jumped over the wall to the little outhouse as the Mrs wants power out there for the tumble dryer and freezer so we can move them from the house to make space for a dish washer.

No photos as simply not much to see other than mess!

Today I wired up the sockets as a ring main all but the lighting as I’m waiting for the spur to arrive for that, I’m also waiting on the insulation worktops and cladding which should be arriving from tomorrow, so with little to do until those items arrive I took the time to mod one of the 1000m units to take the tablesaw.

I was going to remove the saws original bed but i figured if I ever needed it out for some reason that I simply have to just pop the counter top up ( as it’s a short peice just for this tool) and slide the entire unit out and lift the tool right out of the unit, to restore the table to its factroy function it only takes two nuts and bolts to reattach the sliding section of the bed and it’s ready to rock.

So far very happy, but I do need to add a 2nd central brace to the rear shelf the saw sits on as it’s flexing a tiny bit which I’ll finish up tomorrow and I also need to bolt the saws body to the shelf as the saw has so much power it wants to jump and slide down the unit! Simple fixes and the only mod to the unit was two decent braces for the shelf, an addition of (two) central braces and a tiny cut along the front bars edge to just make the saw fit, which won’t be seen once the worktops fitted.

A good result and less hastle than I originally though.

Once the worktops in place (28mm) the saw will still give me 44mm if cut depth, and will once I have added the insert for the counter the full 45dregee bevel cutting ability.
