Building a Police Box


Police box scematic

This police box is a very solid structure.

It is my take on the 1929 Mackenzie Trench design police watch box, very similar to (and the same size as) the Police Watch Box that sits outside Earls Court Railway Station in London.
The police box outside Earl's Court tube station in London was built in 1997 and based on the 1929 Mackenzie Trench design.

The police box here is not a prop.

It is a very solid structure suitable not only for show, but also for many practical uses. It is big and strong enough to be used as a garden shed to store garden tools etc., and it can be transformed into a cattery, a pool side changing shed, or any other type of quirky rendition that could be limited only by your imagination.

This is a full-size version very similar to the police box outside Earl's Court tube station in London.
It is designed for outside use. The corner pillars alone could just about hold up a house.

It is made in sections that can be dismantled if it ever needs to be moved

The footprint is 1430 mm (57¼") square and it stands 2700 mm (9 ft) tall.
