  1. Thought i would start a thread on the new addition to the Geord household:cool:

    They say its all in the preparation so firstly machined a load of redwood earlier in the week. lot's.
    most of the frame work is 25mm x 30mm and the outside perimeter is 25mm x 60mm.

    One tool i don't posses or ever used is a staple gun So been on the hunt for one that will do the job however
    the more i look into it ill be using me driver and screws.

    Looking at starting today however Mrs Geord wants me to start the garden.????????????????

    Plus the weather is so nice i think i won't be doing anything:cool:

    I like the cab details @Geordie :)

    This is exciting. It’s like watching a wooden house build!
