Idea for project

Bridget thought a roofspace conversion might be a nice idea one day in the future in our bedroom. I did a few sketches in microsoft paint to see how it might work. not a bad idea.

Aul Grey Booncy

Here is a photo of my trailer. Got this from my brother for free and have used it loads, very handy indeed. Rambo also is rather partial to it.

Shed becomes Printmaking Studio

Been a while since I've updated my Blog, but getting a namechack on Kate's well maintained blog has inspired me to get it in gear.

Latest projects are aplenty - the lack of blog entries is mainly becuase I am so busy doing things. The best project I'm just starting is my printing press which I got in Edinburgh on ebay a few weeks ago, it weighs a lot, so was good to find one in Scotland.

I've used it a few times now (not as much as I'd have liked) and created some nice prints I'm pleased with. I'll upload one once I get some photos.

Anyway, here is the press in my shed:

Finished Chicken Shelters

Chicken Shelter

There has been a long standing issue with the chicken food getting wet. I put small round roofs on teh individual hoppers but any wind at all and the contents quickly got waterlogged and became inedible and a mess to clean out.

I resolved to build them a wee shelter to sit alongside their house, and built it this weekend.

Here is a photo of me screwing together the frame.

New Woodstore

Had some nice weather on Saturday and managed to get my new woodstore up, painted, roofed and filled with logs. Just in time for some snow to test it out.
