Home-school: day2

On the second day of home-school for the kids, they went to a group at an adventure playground with animals, where Elsie met her double and Oren was schooled in the art of pool hustling by a couple of 8 year olds. Why did we waste so much time sending them to regular school?


…like a glove

Put the window in the wall last night (cheers Matt), and it fits like a tailored glove! I’ll post a pic when I have one. All that remains now is to fill, sand, paint and seal the outside and fit out the inside (seal, insulate, board out, fill, sand and paint the walls, make a floor, oh god the list goes on!), and I’ll be ready to move the office in…once I’ve sorted the radiator lighting and electrics. So not really even close to finishing yet. Still, I do have a tremendous feeling of achievement to have got this far without any major incident!


After a tremendous amount of discussion and thought, we have decided to take our children out of school and educate them at home. Feels a little like stepping off a cliff.

How to build a wall. Pt 1.

So, started building the wall over the weekend. Here are some pics of my first hand-built building (no I don’t think it’s too grand a term).

If I had a hammer….

Tomorrow I should be starting my biggest building project to date. If It doesn’t rain I’ll be SMASHING DOWN the existing utility room wall and re-building it. Oren promises he’s going to help. I’ll document it and stick some pics up.

3D models for sale

I have some 3D models here for sale

Some images I have made in the quiet moments.

As you can see I’ve been reading John Wyndham!

work goes on…

Got a possible booking with  Uniform ( for 3 months. Seems the dry period may be coming to an end (though I shouldn’t really say that, tempting fate an all). Looks like it’s going to be difficult find the time to complete various building projects at home if this keeps up!

I don’t expect this to get much traffic, but I will occasionally post random thoughts, images etc.
