wendy house Wendy house
Christmas present from Granddad.
Just wanted to show you a photo of the finished product of your Wendy House plan. Mr father Dennis Brookes of Summerland Point NSW built the majority of this from scrap materials, even the bright paint was donated by a neighbour who had several left over part tins of different colors. As you can see - you can achieve anything if you try - he only had to spend $50 on materials that he could not find as scrap. He even added a small cut down kitchen and bench top which my girls love to "cook in". He worked very hard over many weekends to complete it just in time for Christmas last year. What a fantastic Christmas present and legacy he left his two grand children. Click on image to enlarge.

garden arched walk bridge Garden arched bridge I eventually finished the garden bridge.
I think it has taken about the same amount of time to work out how to send a photo by email, so trust that it gets to you OK. The span of the bridge is about 3.6 meters. I used the same size battens as per your plan, as I thought the thicker ones might be a bit hard to bend. Using six instead of four, and expanding the scale appropriately, I achieved about the same curvature as in your plans. I added an extra stauchion to keep appropriate proportions, and made the walkway a little wider (80 cms) so that I can get a wheelbarrow across to the island. For glue I used Fullers Max Bond, as the epoxy resins available here would have almost doubled the cost of materials. I used treated pine screws for fasteners , and gave the finished structure a couple of coats of Cabot's Decking Oil. The bridge sits on a footplate of H4 treated pine at each end, which keeps the H3 timber out of contact with the soil. Total cost was approximately A$250, which compared more than favorably with the $1750 I was quoted to have one built - and that didn't have a properly constructed arch, but rather just a curved shape that was cut out of a slab.

I saw the picture of the garden bridge, so I thought I would send in two pictures of my greenhouse I built with your plans.
I am in America, so I had to convert to English measurements. Thanks for the inspiration. We love it!

Hexagonal table
You probably won't see more modifications made to a set of your freebie plans than this project.

I've always liked this table design but what suited my requirements was just the table (minus the benches) and provision for an umbrella. The former wasn't all that difficult to figure out...... more

wishing well
Well, well, well, well. There's little Liam peeping out of the wishing well!
I wonder what he is doing there. Maybe it is his bath time or maybe he is having brussel sprouts for dinner, that would be enough to make anyone hide. I think he is just hiding from his sister.
