Making the steel shelfThe shelf is 2110mm long x 800mm deep, with a 30mm lip, and is welded to the wall, 560mm from the roof. We began taking a 3mm thick steel sheet, cutting to size and bending to create the lip.
The Cutting Machine!
After the welding is done and the shelf is in place, we paint over and "make good" any areas disturbed by the work.
Melamine lining and insulationThis controls the temperature within the container, eliminating condensation, and has bonus of being easy to clean with a quick wipe down.
We create a timber frame into which we pack in rockwool insulating material, and then fit 8mm thick melamine boards over the top of this. As you can see from the step-by-step pictures below, we start with the ceiling, and move down to the walls, working around the shelf.
Lino flooringThe timber container floor is covered with wipe clean lino.
The electricsThe electrical package conforms to 17th Edition 3rd amendment for wiring standards. Included is a three way consumer unit, and RCD protection on both sides.
