    As you say Norma, Builders do throw out some decent Timber, which by the look of it you've put to good use

    well done.

    Not bad at all, I had a skiphire business for 20 years, Builders/joiners would not touch 2nd hand timber. One missed or broken nail and a 30-70 pound blade ruined. That was their excuse. Take your braces off and reattach on the outside. Take your rungs off and put two as spacers on the back. Build a ladder to fit in the gap with 4 4 inch coach bolts. Stiffer and you can unbolt the ladder and remove if seat unused. ATB Jim
