  1. North Glasgow so winter winds can be wild and it’s a little exposed. 3.5m sq, same shape as the wrecked Aldi fabric gazebo, killed by last nights May winds. New Expensive patio furniture is on order and it’ll protect this in winter too It’s to cover this decking, meets Scottish permitted development rules, snip The permitted development rules for an ancillary building are: it's located at the back of the house it's not used as a separate home to live in it, and any other development, does not take up half or more of the 'curtilage' – this means half or more of the grounds behind your home it's not higher than 4 metres at the highest point any part that's a metre or less from the boundary is no higher than 2.5 metres the eaves (the part where the wall meets the roof) is no higher than 3 metres if the land is in a conservation area or in the grounds of a listed building, the ancillary building has a footprint of less than 4 square metres something like this but just posts on the corners. How to anchor the posts? Roof structure for a square hipped roof, I’m not bad with timber but by no means professional? I’m inclined towards a beefy structure with say 6x2’s for the perimeter of the roof edge? Appearance from underneath, thinking frame it, paint/stain the frame and then sheet it in ply (maybe pre painted in a contrast from the frame) then felt tiles as they easy and neat? Don't plan gutters but maybe? id welcome the collective knowledge...
  2. If you’re properly whacky then regulation means owt Go for it 🤪
  3. He made a nice timber frame on top of the existing corrugated roof and I thought he was going to sheet it But he then stretched shed felt across it and used black bitumen to join the felt! Hes new to the street and very reserved and I sort of wanted to walk over and say something but he had already done a few strips by the time I saw it and thought I’d just leave him to it...
  4. Check out my neighbors DIY roof
  5. Ach rubbish post, in the video he scribes the floor then lays a very thick granite tile and the ‘what’s this’ is the hand held power tool that vibrates and forces the tile downwards

  7. Put it inside and make a waterfall feature out of it😀 some nice forest scene wallpaper behind it and sorted!
  8. A sketch would help... how you design the roof and where the rainwater goes might be a good first thought. Also, what’s the workshop for? This will influence things like heating, humidity, comfort, building regs and much more. Are you going to pickle stuff?
  9. I’m a hutter at Carbeth, cost me £10k to build and I could live there off grid easily enough...might sell the house once the youngest has gone and do just that look here for how to go about it in glorious Scotia https://www.thousandhuts.org/

  11. In an old friends mothers house, it was what we call a mansion up a close. It was pretty much Victorian original, they had a bathroom. in the middle of a big room there was a GIANT bath with giant taps that came out of the floor. The bath was in the middle of the room oriented corner to corner but you could socially distance four slaves (servants) around it. They were the kings of luxury. Big Alan the bouncer asked the lady of the house if he could use it. Yes, towels in the (fitted) cupboard and afterwards he said it’s the only bath he could float in without touching the sides and he wasn’t called Big Al for nothing
  12. @PeterStarck something strange happening on my phone, looks like a hobbit house or tiny house😀😀
