    Our New Selection

     



    Photos courtesy of my idiot son.

    1) House and shed from the road side.
    2) Shed from the mezzanine, with the lift in the foreground.
    3) Homemade barbeque and house from the coastal side.
    4) House and shed from the coastal side.
    5) Mezzanine from the floor of the shed, with the lift on the right.

    We've been in here about six months now, getting things organised in the shed, and getting the grounds knocked in to some semblance of order too.
    Both are a pretty big job!

    Looks like plenty to work with. Hope you're getting comfy with it now.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Yep, looks like a great place to work!

    I have to agree with CfFisher, nothing wrong with the shop being bigger than the house.

    Thanks for the kind words people.
    The shot from the mezzanine shows the stillages that hold all my lengths of steel, pipe, and timber, they're 6 metres (20 ft.,) long, as since we went all metric that's now the standard length for timber and steel, with five 'shelves', and stand five ft tall, so they contain an awful lot of 'stuff'.
    The shed was designed so that I can take a curtain-sided truck and trailer into it and drive straight through instead of reversing out.
    The Morris Minor and Cobra are there, but they're behind the bus and not in shot.
    The mezzanine is home to my personal office, library, diecast toy collection, seven cabinets of magazines, (fifty years worth,) and my collection of McDonalds toys. (Almost thirty years worth...about 10,000 toys. They are not yet on display; a job for the winter months.)
    The house is much smaller than the shed, it's about 1,200 sq. ft., which is as She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted it...She reckoned She didn't want to spend all day pushing a vacuum cleaner around.
    Fine by me!
    My workshop itself, which is where the majority of my tools/ nuts/bolts/ lubricants etc are kept is underneath the mezzanine. I'm gradually getting that sorted too. I can at last see the floor! (Last picture bottom left side.)
    Since those photos were taken I have poured a concrete slab for the (half-way through a repaint job,) telephone booth, which is complete with working coin-in-the-slot telephone. (Thank-you for that Mr Spears!)
    The next inside job is to get more bench space organised around where the draindigger (track-hoe to you lot,) is parked at the moment.
    I've been at it now for about six months, there's a lot been done, and there's still a lot to do; but I've actually impressed myself with what has been achieved so far.
    And I've enjoyed it too!
    Creating order out of chaos.
    And with the landscaping that's been done so far we can at last drive completely around the building.

    Nope.
    Most of my diecast toys are of UK, German, French, Kiwi, or Aussie origin.
    Not many USA die-cast toys came to N.Z.; and if they did they were usually beyond my budget.
