Who's been inspired to build a shed this coming year?
I fancy a bash at building an elevated studio along the lines of a US Forestry Service fire lookout tower. I've found the glass and I've got a big stash of timber. I just need some roofing material and something big to make the legs from.
We have a big Oak which has been uprooted and is caught up in the canopy of a neighbouring tree. If it falls it wont endanger anything. My hope is a big January storm will bring it down. Its trunk is straight for about twenty feet and probably three feet in diameter. Hopefully I could get it milled into big square posts.
Not the stuff an architect, quantity surveyor or planner would like, but it'll fit in well with the vernacular here.
