I was browsing Amazon yesterday and came across this. More attractive than your usual garden shed if a bit pricey. Gets pretty good reviews on the Amazon.com US site. Would fit a nice dumb bell style layout.

Sorry , after several attempts I can't get the URL link to work so just search for:

Lifetime 15 x 8 Heavy Duty Fully Accessorised Plastic Shed

on the Amazon UK site.

Ok - got that now. Looks alright, and near to a good quality wooden shed / log cabin in price. I would think there is about the same to do in the way of insulation and being plastic might there be more condensation? Don't know. R-

I had a plastic shed/store at my last house in which I kept the sun loungers (they didn't come out much), brollies and chairs/cushions. Never had a problem with condensation or mould probably because, like this one, it had a vent built in with insect trap. I was so pleased with it I was tempted to bring it with me when we moved. Anyway, I've put this one on my Amazon wish list and I've got my lotto ticket for tonight!

Didn't realise you'd had one like it already. In that case you know what you are doing. Lets hope the same holds true for the Lotto tonight. Good luck. R-

The modeller who does the dioramas for the Hornby catalogue has created a slot-car track layout on the floor of the loft.

http://www.scenicmodelrailways.com/page_593978.html

If you don't mind sitting on the carpet to operate your layout, this arrangement does give you a lot of space.

The project would not be too costly, since all you have got to do is board a corner of the loft and put down a rug.

Shed for me

I've done both had a loft layout then a shed

Problem often forgotten with lofts is the noise when you up there often late at night and other family members are trying to get some sleep. Loft Ladder access can also be a problem if left down.

If using a shed try to go for a high roof and avoid the flat roof ones better ventalation, i've found with sheds its often warmer & cheaper to heat than the house once installation is taken care of.
