Re: Thoughts / Opinions

Thanks folks for all the suggestions and thoughts , this is actually my second choice can you believe it ? I have been doing a lot of traveling this last summer looking for something that i needed to do what I had wanted first , but search as I might , sometimes i was close , but always not quite right .....trying to post a picture , but issues getting into photo bucket ! ......but the one I wanted to build has a bit more of that Hobbit theme , timbers , logs etc .............I might do both ? different styles though , and the sauna closer to the house . Been checking prices on cedar shakes and so far down south the best prices ,,,,,,but there is also a metal shingle that resembles a cedar shake ? will see once I'm close ......did look into making my own shakes , but time is a huge factor for me .

Niglefritz .......I gave up trying to ? profit from what I do years ago .......just do what I would like and leave it there .......always people interested , but when it comes to paying that's a different story unfortunately......but thanks for the kind words

Oh Fowler,  I just love your idea on the hobbit type getaway.    It is so cute and would be so private.    :cool"

Re: Thoughts / Opinions

Okay ...photo bucket is back up so .........this was my original idea / design of what I truly wanted to build ......if you look at the front beam / tree you'll understand what I was searching for , this is what drew me to this design .......but I just can't find that certain tree

Still love the design .....maybe better choice for a sauna ?

Another version of the one I'm thinking of doing

And if I had land , some place nestled among some pines ......I can dream whizzle

But will see how life treats me this year .....always hope

Fowler will have to start growing his toe hair.  Lay off the pedicures for his pretty feet. Any self respecting, pipe puffing hobbit knows he has to have hairy toes.

Doesn't Fowler need a beard too???    Plus old sandals made out of?????   

Prairie Dog, I love the first and second ones.  Soooo darn cute!    Now "IF" you could only find that special Tree.

Re: Thoughts / Opinions

Hobbits don't have beards.  I can't grow a decent one anyway.  If I could, I'd get a wizard hat and robes.

Really like that first one with the green roof.  Good luck using your carpenters square. lol

That's what intrigued me about the design , have figured it all out as far as that goes , the one in the picture has a few flaws that I would do a bit differently , but plain square corners are boring for me , this would be an amazing build .I'd make it ? 8x8 or 10x10 , big enough for a sauna , I could nestle it in at a spot I had been looking at on the yard , close enough for a winter sauna ....get hot and then roll in the snow ....gotta love it .veryfunny.

I don't feel the same optimism ......spring will be at least two months away if not longer , or at least this frigid cold and snow.......but your area gets warmer sooner i think

Well I think I'll make the fantasy house as a sauna , something I might try selling once done , still like the warped wood ( tree ) one as what I'd like to nestle into the woods

I would if I could , hoping to start this as soon as the white stuff is gone , ideas floating around in my head as to what materials to use , It will be interesting , but a good way to keep my mind on something else , will use wood that I have cut on my mill , might get some hydro poles for the cedar bench's , the old ones are amazingly beautiful cedar and a good material for anti fungal areas , the walls will be pine on the inside ............but again , see what I use and how it will look .....drawings will be started next week
