Hey there folks! Got some new insight on the project builds for the GadgetSponge and Muddy Water Resurrections repurposed little libraries!
Here you can see how we took out dividers and made four larger areas to accommodate children's books of all sizes toward the bottom. The top compartments will stay the same for teen and adult books. We permanently connected the doors also so they would work as one door for the larger compartments.
Here you see Justin attaching the top cage that resembles the architecture above the door of the Springhill Library.
And here I am following up with securing the top design to the lockers.
For strength and added effect, we decided to use aluminum sheeting for the roof portion of the library. That way the shape would keep with the rounded arch top. Here, Justin is rounded off the front corners for safety.
You can see me here tracing the guidelines that will match up to our support slats on top to mount the sheet metal to.
We decided to go for the aircraft wing style with the screws resembling rivets. We used rubber washers to keep the rain out.
We brought the sheet metal all the way over the distressed wood to better protect it from the weather.
Still much more to come. In our next update, you'll see the finalized Springhill Library themed little library and a lot of work on the Minden Library project. Stay tuned!
