Going up complete

For most hobbyist there are 3 things that govern a lot of what they do, money, time & space & blessed indeed are those that have all 3, but moving up to the attic should at least I hope help me out on the space end of things.

So day' I decided the first thing to do was get the second window in.

  I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but yes it started raining
 Then needless to say when the window was in it turned into one of the nice's afternoons we've had in weeks
So after that it was get the flooring down in the front half of the attic.

With that done I could get all the Christmas stuff stored away, before cleaning up for the day.

The next yep you guessed it another lovely day just the kind of weather for working in an attic not, but anyway I made a start on getting the table done & if you don't mind a few uprights I now have a 10X4 table.

So next was a work space & some storage.

The work space will be over by the windows as you would guess.

This is an area of about 12X3 so plenty of room.

On the other side I put a shelf for storage as you can never have to much storage
Time to get the servitors out to help with the ladder.

The ladders in so time to call it a day.

Next day I began the hard bit getting all of my stuff up.

I've about 90% of it up going to post the rest I'll bring up tomorrow, well that's it for me my thanks to Paddy & Joe & as always my thanks to you for dropping in & if you'd care to leave a comment it would be well come.
