This is a top view showing the walls and floor space, the roof overhang to the left covers a recessed area inside the building this will have lights mounted along not only the inside section but also the area that covers the entrance. To the bottom of the image you can see one of the full wall length windows, this along with the two wall sections to the left and also the top are fully removable for ease of access and also for photographing items on display, i will mention that the property is meant to resemble a gallery for displaying not only pieces i make but also for some of the items i have collected.
This image shows the front of the build and the main entrance which as i said before will be a sliding door, all of the windows and doors are or will be constructed from walnut, the main frame and floor are all solid oak, also in this shot you can see the overhang that will house the lights, again the end wall section in this shot with the two window panes is fully removable.
This photo shows the wall section removed. The interior solid walls i wanted to do something a little different with i decided to panel these with different hardwoods, these are beech, oak , maple and koto.
Again showing the main entrance with the overhang also in this shot you can see the different timber i have used for the interior walls.
An end view shot through the floor to ceiling windows, i wanted as much natural light as possible to shine inside the gallery once completed.
And finally showing the main entrance again with the interior wall timbers, again because i have made the wall sections fully removable this also enables me to construct different designed sections which will also give the building a different look.
Well that's the progress i have made so far, there's still a fair way to go but I'm happy how its turned out up to now, I'm still planning the roof and also looking around for different lighting options as this moves forward i will make more progress reports on how things are going.
Have a great weekend everyone. Tony.
