Started work on the open fronted Summer House for the corner of the garden.

Got the base made and some noggins fitted. I have got to level the ground and flatten

it, fit some legs and stone bases then it's decking for the top before I start on the Summer House!!

Cracked on with it today, shell now complete but no OSB in stock anywhere!! Sorting out the cladding next.     

A bit more done today, the back wall and some of one side. Got order some more feather Edge boards on Monday. The roofing is only temporary until they decide to make more OSB boards!!  

Decking now fixed. Back ache again!! The front piece is for the chimanea.    

Got back built this morning, run out of wood now until I get a delivery on Thursday!

Painting the decking tomorrow I think.

Looking good Ron.

Would you mind saying where you can still order wood. I thought most yards were closed.

cheers,

Graham

Left hand wall now completed and I hope to finish the Right hand wall tomorrow.

I still cannot get hold of any OSB board for the roof yet so temporary roof has to stay till then!!

Looking good Ron.

I wished I lived closer to you I have sheets and sheets of marine ply here, would have done that roof a treat.

Finished the walls today, I need to source some OSB for the roof to finish it!

Of course we need to buy some relaxing chairs and a table to stand the bottles on!!!

and gravel around the base etc...
