I received a plan to build a workshop from a “customer”

The plan:

The plan was discussed the customer left and I set to work

Busily working away

The customer returned and assesssed work

The paint schedule was discussed

The paints were purchased

Painting commenced

I wont go into the problems I had painting as they are documented in my blog on the construction however I might add they were over come.

Now by this time the customer had actually departed, he said he had a very important engagment to attend

First Day at School !!

Very NICE!

It came out very well!!

I like the work bench on the lower floor…

Going up stairs on ladder might be a problem… if they could get through the hole, they’d bump their head on the bed. :) :) ... but, we know no one is going to try to do that… right? LOL

COOL picture on the TV…

COOL Project…

Thank you for sharing it with us!

Have fun!

Great collaboration between you and your “customer”, Rob! That bench looks very sturdy, hope it’s where he wants it, as it appears to be a beast to move ;-)
Very clever on the hidden trap door under the bed. You’ll have lots of builds ahead with that adorable customer. Thanks for sharing.

Very creative Rob. That is a spectacular result for a “VERY IMPORTANT” customer.

Thanks for sharing.

Bob. (Oh; The things we do!!!!)
