Building

Now that the platform was up it was time to come up with a plan for the house......Long story short I built a wee cardboard model.

I was shooting for “Whimsical” and angled just about everything I could. This tends to put twist in walls and roof and if built as a cabinet would mean lots of compound mitres, when it came to building it I kept the joinery simple and used shims and bolts on the corners used a plywood gusset on the roof frame that acts as a wall tie- then sheaved the inside with plywood with a tight screw/nail schedule.

I built the frame in my driveway then took it apart and reassembled it on the platform
