But errr, from the pics, is there anything anchoring the shed to the ground?

 

 

Its gravity-assist, half a ton of firewood :-).

I realise it's got wood now but surely there's a plan to turn the wood into ash which doesn't weigh nearly as much?

 

Anyway, just an observation. As I said, nice shed.

Worth noting that with recent change to the building permit system ... it will be possible to build much bigger sheds!

 

The Wolf isn't happy though ...

I do wonder about one point, he was talking about flatting with students but then mentions:

 

If you're going to build a tiny house, you're going to want to have a shower and do the dishes.

 

I thought both of those were optional for students?

Even better, wash the dishes while you're in the shower. Saves both time and water.

We dis think about concrete posts but limited supplies during lock down and had a small time frame to build.. I guess it would be easy to add in the future.

Couldn't find a pump cover so put this together over the last few weekends and finally got it all connected to the tank today. Just need last touch up with paint.

New TV unit for the spare/games room. As its for the games I wanted to add a splash of colour, hence the Lime Blitz! Most impressed that I used this project to teach myself SketchUp and the final product looks pretty close to what I had modelled.

Cabinet looks good. I've not heard of SketchUp but it looks great. Can I Play with a house design on it ?

You certainly can. I used a 2 month free trial on Skillshare and followed a tutorial from there. You model up a simple 3 bead house as part of the tutorial. 

 

 

 

Its quite powerful.

Here's one of a number of cat boxes I've made for a cat rescue organisation.

The cats love to climb into these and sit and look out at the world around them.

Brad nailed. I used 9 mm plywood to make these. They're 350 * 350 mm and the sides are 260 mm tall.

 

I'm gonna make one more that's 400 * 400 mm for a large Maine Coon that is too big to fit in one of the smaller boxes.

I'm making kitty play equipment too. Is there a rule of thumb or ideal for height off the ground for boxes? Or spacing between platforms?
