Also, since I've never seen an actual police box in person the closest thing my brain can connect it to is a mid-20th century phone booth (think Bill & Ted). It's one thing to look at plans and say "OK, its going to be 10' tall and 4' wide." You can even assemble the walls on the ground and it still doesn't sink in. But when it finally comes time to put it together, it hits you just how big the damned thing is. I thought I'd tuck mine up next to the big 6' fence my neighbors have. Maybe put it behind the garage. But I soon realized it would tower over the fence and would even be taller than the back of my little garage. I started to worry. What would the neighbors think? Was I violating any zoning ordinances? Turned out I didn't need to worry. One neighbor came over to help me screw everything together and the other neighbor came out of his house as I was putting the roof on. "Is that a TARDIS?" "No. Its a garden shed. But it looks like a TARDIS." "Cool!" and he went back in the house.
