Clocks all Ticking

Clocks all working fine now – new hands, new varnish – and ready to be delivered.  Tested them by hanging them on my workshop wall.

Barn raising in Bucks

We’ve been travelling around a lot recently.  The last job was making a palace for guinea pigs in Kent.  This one is a slate-roofed barn in a garden in Buckinghamshire.  Designed in consultation with the client and built from scratch.  As usual assisted by Milo.  Wood was sourced from our experts at http://www.linnellbros.co.uk in Silverstone.

 

 

Guinea pig palace

Last week’s commission was a bit unusual.  The shed needed to be small enough to fit an angled space in a small garden but also deep enough to contain a guinea pig hutch with wide-swinging doors.   An extra design consideration was opening lights to give ventilation for the small furry animals.  We think the piggies were pleased with the result.
