finished the hand rail

so they can finally go upstairs in a safe way

not real logical since there is no storage upstairs but i liked the shot

Great work on the upper level!  Turn the desk around so the boss is looking down on the shop floor.  Then he can sit up there and yell at the workers   :rolleyes:

thnx bill !

started on some roof steel , got these free strips , dont know what they where for but i have a lot of those

221796_278483028951281_1683869121_n.jpg

made a start

305241_278483062284611_2000614871_n.jpg

then doubled up and made it thicker , a h profile from styrene would be nicer but that would not be cheap and this stuff was free.
now i also like to use old stuff and recycle stuff so this was perfect

65289_278483035617947_1751741888_n.jpg

keeping it removable

420380_278483098951274_1994543202_n.jpg

put a wooden plate on top to see how it would be closed up with a ceiling , just for a test..
its making the whole dio very dark and takes away a lot of sight on everything..
now one idea would be to make a closed ceiling but with hinges so it can open up as well and maybe make the steel supports against that so you can open up the whole roof and have a open dio

The roof detail looks good, as long as you don't glue it down so it can be taken off to show off the details.

thnx a lot guys !!!! and daniel coming from you thats a big compliment love your realistic dio work !!!
 
well continued the frame and realised i def. need to make it removable or hinge it so the whole roof with beams can be opened ..
i already noticed when taking pics a roof is actually holding you back a lot ..and yes now the details show less so i'm thinking of that atm..
would be cool to closed it up and then make roof skylights in the roof , like those raised industrial looking ones .. so when the roof is on natural light comes in true the roof

decided to make the roof removable and go for loads of industrial skylights

the crosses are to get the center so every croff wil have a skylight

Just a suggestion here , but a "MILD" dusting of say a White primer that was Frosted on a piece of Plexiglas might just achieve a virtual roof and allow enough light to show through as well.

yes thats true .. now one thing is for sure i didnt think of the outside and this dio will never become nice to look at from the outside .. the next one i will make sure the outside is as nice as the inside ...
but doing it that way i think would not matter for the outside look but inside it would not be nice enough ..
my idea is to make those jagged styled skyelights and finish the inside with some wooden planks on top of the steel so when you make a picture inside you will see steel / wood and skyelights with light coming true sideways

some atmosphere pics with my 2 rustbuckets , this gives nice options for some cool picture shooting , love the shades dropping on the cars , you can schoose how to place them so some parts are highlighted and some are darker ...
