now then people, welcome to the all new sparkling construction section! :lol:

To get started, heres a picture of what you can build if you put your mind to it. Theres two items in this photo. One i built using modified plans off the internet and lots of pallets, :)

the other, i provided half of the designs and specifications, but the construction was done by my wife Julie. Took her a few months to do, but the result is brilliant 8)  :D

id say ur good for 4/5 chucks with that matey , step he roost poles down at 45% on the back side . one point you have loads gaps in the wood planks . its not cold that kills mate its draughts .. use coir string to fill the gaps .. its called caulking the planks same as they do on carvel built boats

come on mate i already thought of that! :lol:  all the boards are caulked where they join, sides ends the lot. Ive personally sat in it in a strongish wind and felt for draughts, its blooming cosy in there!

my patent ventilation grille isa under that plywood board

the only place where theres a problem is top of the door, im goin to put a length of rubber over that to seal it


It was adapted from a design for 8-10 chucks, down to a 4-6 chuck design
