    Well its safe to say the hobbit house is nearing completion. It's been a amazingly fun project to work on.

    I first saw these hobbit homes online to buy for ?700 about a year ago.....and thought you know what I could do that. I have little to no experience of wood work and joinery and it was way above my skill level but don't ever let the fear of not knowing how to do something put you off learning. If you need a specific tool (cutting out the large circles) then..... make the tool. Prepare.... Be patient... Innovate and research and the end result will be something you will be smiling ear to ear from. As a human your capable of anything. Don't rely on others. Do it yourself.

    For my beautiful girl.

    Mate that looks mint, really impressive that you have done all that with little to no experience.
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    I reckon there is space for a small bed in there for sure!

    I didn't really have any experience however I guess my hands on engineering job helped in some regard. But as for woodwork that is a whole new ball game for me

    I might be asking one for myself, I'm often in the doghouse and this looks like a 5 star hotel doghouse.

    I think, in truth, you need to get the wife in there and test the stability as it were....
