Having build a study for Jake some time back,

http://actionmanmobileops.forumotion.co.uk/t1832-my-latest-project-1-6-scale-room

I decided that it was time it needed improving. I learned quite a few lessons making the first study, so with this in mind, I set to work. However, I needed a place to start! Very Happy .
The wife had decided that an old PC unit had to go, so before she could throw it out, I whisked it off to the vam room! cheers , stripped it out, re positioned the doors from the front to the rear and sealed it up, making a much larger area for Jake's new study. I added some cladding to make the floor boards and began to seal up the gaps.

Not much happened for the next few weeks, as 1;1 stuff kept getting in the way Suspect .

A few weeks later, I picked back up with the project Very Happy I wallpapered the walls, and have now began to add more cladding around the walls, and using recycled parts from the original study, added some doors cheers cheers

As you can see Minty looks very pleased with his work so far! but as this is a slow burning project it may be a while before the next update, hope you guys enjoyed the thread so far, thanks for looking cheers

Thanks P.J!, It is a little daunting taking apart the old study to re build a larger one Rolling Eyes , I just hope that the new version turns out as well as the first Very Happy . More to come soon bounce

I'm really really liking the start of Jake's study 2.0, the fire place would look warm and cozy when Jake's doing some very inportent paper work.
