Dee’s Nuts and more nuts, and some bolts, nails, Zincs..
As we go through the past couple months of my weekends and moments not on zoom calls, one room has been the most tedious. The parts room. Or more like the Room of Nuts! My plan is to have this be a place for all my parts. But the layout was not all that great, yet, I wanted to save the texture of it all. And each bin was full of bolts, zincs, pipes.. AHHHHHHHHH!
The Room of nuts – red arrow.
Lets go in there. BTW, even George isnt a fan of this room. Leaks, has vines inside.. Epoxy spill on the floor. I LOVE IT!
BTW, this is cleaned up. Old shelves, which are very cool, BUT about to fall apart. The light bulb lighting is classic.. But for my old man eyesite needed to be changed first. HELLO TEMP LED..
I had to move two of the nut racks.. Insert joke here.. Full of stuff, see on the floor. All NOS, but need to be weeded through and put in proper rack.. BTW, Those racks are heavy and wobbly.
The work bench on the left was full of stuff. Didnt even know it was there. And very cool NOS hardware
Love this top! I know of a certain chair in Mt Dora that will be perfect here
The other view, thats the Library and a small office. Which I am thinking could be a nice bathroom with shower so I can return home
The shelving is from an old general store next door that’s been there forever. Now a snazzy restaurant. And this room got put on hold to get the office done first. This room will also hold Chris Craft parts, and more hardware. The Library which will be later will house books, brochures and history of the Railway and classic boats. Below is Work in progress on the office. New Insulation.
Not a one man job, but I have Bruiser there yelping me!
The plan is to install 2 inch insulation as seen here, then layer Cedar planks on the ceiling. So it stays true to its feel. You will not see this. But you sure will feel it. I also installed a light to aim up and light the area. The lights hanging will be replaced with vintage Benjamin Industrial lights. Stay tuned on that. VERY VERY COOL!
STAY TUNED! They arrive today.
