Week-ending 12th January 2024

Mr Chairman has been busy finishing some huts for Tŷ’n-y-Coedcae. Working clockwise from the top:

The woodwork on an original Pol Sands hut has been repainted to match a the new Edwardian period.

LBH assembled a 422 Modelmaking Timber Platelayers’ Hut kit and Mr C ‘repaired’ a broken batten and painted it.

Finally MrC has revived an earlier model of a scratch built wooden hut. In its original location the rear wasn’t visible, so wasn’t finished to the same standard as the rest. However on Tŷ’n-y-Coedcae it’ll be both viewer-facing and close to the front so an upgrade is needed. MrC ingeniously sourced the thin wooden sheet from Camembert packaging.
