    Thanks, guys.


    A little more progress was made over the weekend. All the steel beams made from plastic are now up. The roll up door and walk in doors are framed up at this point.

    Thanks!

    A little bit more progress was made over the weekend. The roof/ceiling was set in place, and some overhead lighting was installed. I used some LED strip lights mounted to some aluminum angle to hide the lights enough so that you don't view them directly when looking in, but they still light whole the area.

    I will have to see how pics turn out with them as-is. I may 3D print some diffusers to go over them with some clear filament to make the light a little softer if needed.

    Thanks, guys!

    The tiny building inspector stopped by and told me I needed more bracing to the structure, so I put up some rod braces with turnbuckles.




    The rods are 1/16" music wire and the turnbuckles are a part I designed and 3D printed. Painted to match, and they passed inspection.




    I was also able to put up the walk in door. 3D printed also, with some aluminum tubing for the hinge detail. I still need to make and install the door hardware to secure the shop.




    Progress has been slow...but at least it is progress.

    Thanks. It has been a fun project so far. Much like a 1:1 garage it will be fun to fill it with tools and equipment over time.


    I took some time to research and make a couple of wood pallets so I can start receiving shipments of miniature goodies for the shop and some builds.

    I made a standard 40"x40" pallet, and a 40"x48" pallet. Those are some 1.55" wheels on the 40x40 for reference.

    That is a very slick and modern take on the scale garage! I love the bracing stays, a crucial detail of the modern shed! And those other toys.... So much jelly!!

    Thank you, sir! x2

    It's off to a good start. I have a long list of details I hope to add as time allows.
