My own project, i picked a very wet few months at the end of 2015,  not  ideal weather.  This is my next apprentice, Mason.



resim

Looked a nice day in November.  The 8x8 green oak posts were the heaviest things i have ever lifted, 4x3 wall plate.

The roof was the easy bit, keeping the wall plate low  as not to go to high overall, gave me another workaround,  the 4m spans were bowing under the weight.  I had to wrap the wall plates in steel, might see on another pic.


resim
Just make out the box steel primed.  I have sanded the pillars, which too me two days to do. Worth it they came up nice in the end.

The tiles were a pain to do, my two B-inlaws did most of it. Composite tiles with plastic ridges, copper nail's and pins.



resim

Very nearly finished, in all it took me 6 months  of week ends and dodging the weather.  Had some good parties already.
I did a kitchen in summer 15 and they had a small 3x3 which they were always under, which gave me the idea.  Just a little bigger.

Very nice Ray..! ThumbUp

BUT,.....what's the panel on the ceiling? It looks like a sheet of Perspex or Glass.....and it appears to be pissed,  but that may be an optical illusion.

No its not pissed but it does look it in the pic.  It is just bathroom pvc ceiling panels, my original idea was black ceiling with hundreds of fibre optic lights drilled through, but the work involved was to much for the time left to a party so i put that up. 

Premier inn rates will apply,  oh look the rates have gone up over the week end.  That always happens Evil_smile2
