a small team of people including myself decided to make the braces whilst the painting and wallpapering was completed. the braces were very simple to make with lengths of 3x1 pine screwed together to make an 'L' shape. once these were made we put them around the outside of the set. at 2 foot up on the back of the flats we screwed the braces into every other strut. we also did this to the top of the drawing room. it was a very simple job and quick to do the only problem that we ran into was manouvering the braces within the small space that we had around the outside of the set.
