After speaking with a few folks I’ve put together a latest proposal for Stage 2 of the walls.
The plan is to add in two additional walls in the corner where the wall wood is currently stored
This will section of an area for the Welding / Grinding.
This is a continuation of this thread - http://list.hacman.org.uk/t/next-wall-area-maybe/2158/4
Instead of doors, we’ll have large openings on both walls.
The openings will be 8ft high and as wide as possible.
The openings will also have welding curtains draped down which can be retracted upwards using one form or another.
This should allow us to wheel things in and out of that area easily
Allow us to shield anyone from arceye if welding is going on
Allow us to shield the surrounding area from flying sparks
Above 8ft we can have ether plasterboard or osb, this means we can ventilate the area without making the rest of the space cold.
Lathe will be inside the welding area / covered when not in use to protect it
We can also use this area for isolating fumes for drying paint, although we’ll have to avoid storing paint in that area with sparks around.
On the walls with the windows, the frame will extend out a bit (about 2ft or so) so that we can have a table against this part
For the dimentions so far I’ve measured
- From the wall with the windows on (right to left) - 3.8m across to where the arch ends / flat bit / members storage starts
- From the wall with the emergency door on (back to front) - 3.8m up to where the square light that isn’t used is handing / past the window edge.
- The existing wood in the corner should cover the frame.
I’m not sure how many curtains we need but they come in 6ft x 8ft sizes £27 each
I’ve scored some plasterboard that was being thrown out, one idea is to place a couple of layers of this at the bottom for heat insulation. I’m not sure how much more osb / plasterboard we need since we still have some spare from the last walls.
Please let me know of any comments
