A lovely ambience combined with the satisfaction of having conserved a shed of some historic interest. When you go in, it's like stepping back in time. All the work was completed by myself and my brother-in- law, neither of us having any previous experience of either woodwork or upholstery. It's great to make a start and learn as you go along! Cost was low. With the exception of the fabric, all reconstruction was from recycled materials. I did splash out on a few original railway fittings to make the job as authentic as possible.

Other info

Rebuilt from abysmal condition and restored over an 11 year period using Cuprinol preservatives on all timber framing, doors, floor and panels. Full railway and local history available.
