Nice looking doors Twy - there's a lot of them :shock:
Are they all internal? Or are they strong enough to be used as external as well?

Looking good BB7 - had the wood heater on yet? It's currently minus 6.6 here ATM (07.15) - winter's definitely arrived!

Things have slowed again. Once school started I began getting quite a lot of teaching (unusual for term 1) which put the brakes on the build somewhat. I need the…

Scary stuff Beetaloo - your place looks as dry as mine. Glad the fire didn't get too close.

Floor looks superb - mine won't be half that nice!! I'm loving the clean lines and angles you have created with your spaces.Great work.

Hi BB7 - it's a budget build so they are budget decking boards! Big green shed. 90 x 22 @ $2.35 per metre.

Great progress there BB7 - you're in and settled and it looks great. And you're still pretty green over your way. Did you get your splashback up yet?
