Thanks Frank, Greg, Dave & Carl.
We are back from the wedding and it was great.

Frank, yes very proud of everything my daughter has achieved.
Carl. My daughter, Anna, only ever wanted a small wedding, so there was only 7 of us, Mums & Dads x 2 each, Bride & Groom and our son, plus the celebrant & photographer.

Due to Covid restrictions, the wedding was already cancelled twice in the last year. So finally when it happened we actually all made a small 4 day holiday of it.

Booked a luxury country home at Daylesford, about 1.5 hrs from Melbourne. Had a high end lunch for all at a restaurant on Monday. On Tuesday, the wedding was at the house followed by a 6 course dinner personally cooked by a local Michelin star chef. Brilliant meal. Then the next 2 days just visiting local sites and long walks.

First holiday I've had in 14 months, and the wedding was a bonus. No we didn't pay for it, but their gift from us should more than cover it. She's worth it.



Regards Rob

My current build.

Sounds like a first class wedding celebration to me Rob.

Wish society could be convinced what you did is more than adequate! Bravo!

Thanks Frank, Carl & Larry.

Now back to the build. Carl, I've had enough supplies for this build for a long time. Just didn't get around to it. Hopefully I haven't missed anything.

I've added all the trim around the door frames, and corners.






And have made up the upper level door from balsa

Rob,

The wedding sounds very special.

Your structure is already looking very good; no two walls are at all the same.

Thanks Mike & Jerry. the smallest weeding I've been too, but one of the best. My daughter is a stickler for detail.

Mike, sometimes on my structures no 2 walls are the same, when they actually should be.

Have made up the interior floors. Just used some stirrer sticks, to represent planks , glued to a balsa subfloor. Done in 2 halves due to the width of the balsa





I don't know what the interior is like on the original, or if there even was any, so I'm just making up my own. I'm going to have interior stairs, using Rusty Stumps stair stringer kit.


And the upper floor is just a piece of corrugated cardboard.
