What's Inside? (I hear you ask?)

Come with me for a quick tour of our *(newly aquired) railway carriage.
*(scroll down to see previous posting)
Centre of carriage: Here we have a little fold-down table and some built-in bookshelves (I'm sure I won't have any trouble filling them up) We are thinking we might take out the doorway (in the background) to make the room bigger. This leads through to the unrestored end - lots of work to do! The curtain is only temporary.

Here is the little sink and cupboards in the centre of the carriage. We might take out the wood panel (thin wood screen) behind the shelves.

End wall of the restored part of the carriage. You can open up the louvre window and let in the breeze. The timber is red cedar panelling. The floors (skinny tongue and groove) are awaiting to be sanded. We were told that the wood is a nice dark red colour when sanded back. We need to place some skirting boards around after the floors are finished.

Here is the sliding door that leads into the restored end of the carriage. It has nice glass panels. (old).

I can't wait till we transport it to its new home in our front yard. It will be wonderful to have a proper workspace/studio. I will just have to be patient.
Bye for now,
Sandi xx
