Another shot, from this angle you can see the path rises towards back of building, about 18 inches between front & back

Eric decided it looked too bare, so he put up a rail with some 6" nails to hang stuff on & make the place look more " Lived in "
Pity theres no hook or hole on the grass hook though  Grin

I gave the floor slab gaps an application of a thick mix of PVA white / grey acrylic / polyfilla mix & I think its a great improvement as it has definately softened the sharp edges of the slate slabs
An effect that would be difficult to acheive just scribing a full sheet instead of using individual slabs

Don ................ that does indeed look so much better, and true ........... a scribed sheet just couldn't pull that effect off.

I'm loving the "dressing-up" in the workshop - really quite convincing ................ good job.

Thanks guys

In such a small room, 7' x 9', with shelves & bench etc., I have a job getting right light for photography, especially as the building height is about 30 ins
with my fatigue carrying it from upstairs down to the garden is  not on.
To get light in the window I have bodged an extention to the 12" window work bench

old cabinet side clamped to bench

with spare banister rod screwed underneath for support

So using the bench extention
this shot was taken facing the window & had to crop it even tho the

blind was down
here you can see the different levels at the end of passage & door

into tack room, there was 2 steps down there.

I'm loving the "dressing-up" in the workshop - really quite convincing ................ good job.

Basically the dressing up was an excuse for a quickie photoshoot
Clutter,
 I am in two minds,
if it is all fixed or glued down, nothing will get out of place when moved
BUT
 I do like to take series of pics telling a story,
 which would be easier if it all was removable but that would be a chore,
so maybe middle course, stuff round the edges that would always be there be fixed
 & rest movable,
 so far only the Hay rack, work bench & rail above it & spare wood on end in corner at far end of bench is fixed
for example a load of fire logs rounds has arrived at the doorway ( yet to be modelled!!)
Using the go-cart, & turning the tomato tray seat up the other way, my job was to move the smaller stuff

#1  -  Surprising how much you can move!

#2  -  clutter to sides, space clear through middle
