More progress on the walls (Swedish Sauna right?)



And all the insulation finally fitted, glad that job is behind me, funny how the insulating & cladding landed on the hottest week of the decade!

You have made such a good job of that.
Looks amazing.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Looks like it will be a very cosy home for some field mice, too! 8-)

The security measures   8)  8)  8)   :-X   8)  8)  8) that shall not be mentioned, will also make provision for rodents!

To be honest, I am more worried about frogs (live & dead), toads (I have too many), tortoises (should I have those instead of Peco) and field buses than field mice!

Progress back in my hands now as the electrics start to go in, as you might imagine, the Woodtink wanted flush mounted sockets (though almost think he would prefer invisible ones)!



Starting to look dangerously close to finished now :)

That is the side walls done now (and the mains cable suitably punctured by the Woodtink) - just the ends to do & it will be pretty much done inside (wiring & painting aside)  :beers:

What colour are you going to paint the inside?

I was going to go a bit native & use CR or NBR station colours, but was worried that would make things a bit dark as they used a purple/brown shade - so I will stay true to my LNER loyalty and go with light Brunswick Green (lower 1/3rd) and deep cream for the (upper 2/3rds) walls, ceiling just plain white to help with light reflection .....  something sort of like this.....



Though, a lot of it will be hidden by the backscene.....

An inspired scheme. Should look stunning and the cream upper will help with lighting. Is there any merit in the idea of running a length of horizontal wooden batten along the walls to help with separating the 2 colours? Thought it would be easier to get it all straight rather than trying to paint a straight line on vertical planks. :confused1:

I have insisted on a decorative dado rail, Chris, as it will do the same job but look soooo much better :D

An even better solution. I thought about suggesting a dado rail but so many people I know speak of them with disgust  >:(. I have one in my living room and although I painted all my walls the same colour (it's a small room) I don't object to it and it will look very good. :thumbsup:

Excellent ideas, for the most part, said Dado rail will be the supporting rail for the baseboards, but could easily continue that around the rest of the walls to create the break..... but does the dado rail become part of the green portion or the cream portion.... or should it be black as in the photo I was using a reference!  every decision on this job seems to be multiple choice with D) being any one of the above!

I am not sure if I am indecisive......

Could be either - up to you. If it is going to be a rear support for the layout then it may as well be green.

NGF Rule 2 - it's YOUR dado rail and paint it any colour you want (as long as it's black - shut up Henry).

Just recovering from a bit of comm's black out here (19 hours with only a satellite phone for company!)

The van now has one end clad :)



Almost an optical illusion if you stare at it too long!



Now to do something about all those wires  :confused2:
