 The engine shed build continues. Rather slowly it has to be said, as being that it's nice outside and Mrs F is on school holiday, I keep getting dragged out to do boring things like garden stuff and runs to the dump, things that in my experience will always be there quite happily until next week. Anyway... doors.
I was aware that there is a right and a wrong way to build a brace and ledge door, and although there is a difference of opinion to which way the diagonals should run, the majority run down to the hinges. Above my bodge with Wills sheet and 30 thou, below a store now used as a garage for a nice Austin in Orford a couple of weeks back.

  1. The rule of thumb is that braces should always be in compression toward the hinges to stop the gate/door dropping.
