Going up

I've spoken here before about how Tricol is a long term project & of my need of more space, well happy I am to let you know that I've finally got start on the extra space project :-)

                                          So it begins as I start to remove the trapdoor.

                     Next think is to make the opening bigger for the folding ladder below.
                         I won't be able to fit the ladder until I've all of the sheets for the floor up.

                       It's dark up here but hopefully there will be light at the end of the tunnel.
                                                It doesn't look any better in the light sadly.

 Progress as I start to get some of the flooring down.

                             With the flooring down on the back half I decide to have some fun.

So I make a hole in the roof, needless to tell you the moment I did it rained.

But with the first of the windows in all is looking good, it feels great to have this started on this at long last.

Well that's it food this post as always my thanks for dropping in & if you'd care to comment it will be welcomed :-)


  1. Good luck Frank, having had a loft conversion a few years ago I can only admire you for taking this on yourself!

    1. Thanks Dave I use to do it for a living so know well what it all about but I'm not going full hog on it tbh but I'll let pictures explain as its easier that way mate.

  2. That's some serious conversion work you are doing there! That window is a great addition.

    1. Thanks Marc, the windows I was lucky enough to get free as they where taken out of the garage where my son works, as you know with modelling it's hard to beat natural light.

  3. Good to see you moving up in the world franco ;)
