The New Train Room

After months of the usual stress and bother involved in buying a house, we finally got the keys and have begun to move in. As much as I'm looking forward to beginning the layout, the list of things to do on the house is already growing at an alarming rate! So any progress will no doubt be slow or non existent for now. But at least I know there is a space ready and waiting when the time comes. In any case I thought I'd share a few pics of the new train room, a seven metre x seven metre (inside the framework dimensions) double garage. This will be where the layout will begin to be constructed, hopefully not too far into the future.

I'm hoping that over the next few weeks we wil get all types of weather so that I can see how the temperature varies in the garage, as well as finding out if there are any leaks. It all looks very dry inside and I can see no signs of water damage on either the framework or walls so fingers crossed it's all in good shape.

The first priorities will probably be to install some more power points, and then have a really good think about lining the walls. I'm hoping I can get away with not having to line them, but if it looks like it is necessary long term it would be silly not to do it.
