This looks a very good idea.
Can't wait to see how it progresses through to completion.

This is as far as I got before rain stopped play, looking forward to tomorrow.
There was a bit of swearing involved doing the door frame, I was holding 2 bits together and screwing at the same time (with a cordless screwdriver) and I mast have had so of the skin of my finger in-between the 2 bits of wood and when they pulled together they squashed that skin (that was very painful.

I've just had a thought! Unusual I know.
You could use that as a man cave and do your modelling in there.
Only one snag. The hot tub would have to go.
I'll leave you and your wife to discuss that one BigGrin BigGrin

That is a lovely bit of construction there Ken!Cool Cool Cool
There's just something about a pristine clean and smooth wooden building/model/diy that I really love. It's always a crying shame when the wood has to be stained or painted afterwards!
The love of it probably stems from my childhood when a bit of 'good wood' for a project was something that wasn't coated in mud with a family of slugs in residence from the garden - a bit that was but not rotten was deemed 'acceptable'BigGrin
A beautiful looking room!

More done to the hot tub cabin. 
Those dors took 3 hrs to fits they didnt bind or catch anywhere (I'm sure when the weight of the glass is in them I will have to re adjust again) loads more to do yet but the bulk of it is done now.

This is what you call modelling on a grand scale.
Very nicely done, kpnuts.

Now that is kinda cool! Looks like it was dead simple to build?

Merry Christmas,

So our boss kindly gave us Christmas eve off (love where I work) so I glazed the summer house and stained it with sadolin unfortunately swmbo didn't like the colour, fortunately I agree, so we bought some cornflower stain and this is the first coat (which I must admit I like much better, goes with the cream really well)

A very good choice of colour if I may say so.
It’s going to look very smart when finished?

OK 2 more coats of stain (one more I think would do it) 




Got the inside stained, got the electrics in.







And importantly somewhere to hang the dressing gowns



Our friend is coming round tomorrow (he owns a flooring business)

To put some 1/4 inch ply on the floor and half way up the wall then cover it with vinyl.

Be careful you don't make it too homely, kpnuts,

SWNBO might start thinking that you could live in there permanently!! BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin
