Looks good on the outside:

But the inside is in need of some attention!

The old insulation in the roof was sparse and the plywood lining had been damaged by a previous owner, hence the 'back to basics' upgrade! All good fun!

Martin it looks almost new from outside :thumb:
I'm sure you will get inside in similar condition with a bit of good planing
Keep the pics coming :brew:

Hi Martin you can get some veneered ply and do the inside with that it makes a real good job.

Hi Dave,

I've bought some lining carpet to cover the ceiling panel with and will inset some led lights to make the interior a bit lighter. Had to buy a new sheet of 6mm plywood as the old sheet seems to be delaminating around the edges, possibly caused by condensation. The Rockwool insulation fitting by the factory was very thin and it didn't fill the panels in the roof framing very well, although that might have been an age related issue. Going to use high density polystyrene to provide insulation this time.
