I made up the window jams to suit, primed them after routering out a rebate for the glass to sit in and then gave them one coat of Dulux weathershield (also self priming, 100% Acrylic paint) Patina colour. Which is a greeny blue colour. All the window jams and door jam are made from 'Design Pine' which is treated and primed aswell. I've made sure that these window and door jams are properly sealed from the elements to ensure no rot for decades to come! Also the great thing about 'Design Pine' is that they use short pieces of Pine stock and finger joint them, this reduces the movement and twisting in the length of the timber and adds strength.
Ok so that is a brief low down on the workshop for now! Enjoy!
|The workshop with not cladding or roofing!
|The batons necessary to support the corrugated sheet and to connect each truss frame
|The truss were spaced out every 600mm. Overhang was 200mm over wall top plate
|We used gangplates and nails to connect each component
|Heritage red Colourbond roof, Polycarbonate, gutters!
|We opted for Baltic Pine 170mm wide weatherboards
|Window jams are overhang 30mm to butt up against the weatherboards.
Keep posted for the next update. By then we should have finished the weatherboards and sealed the ends of the roof along with everything else that needs to be done!
