Life is either an adventure, or nothing. Give me some splinters.

I'm in the exact same boat. I have no real idea what I'm doing, but I'm having a blast. I'll post some pics soon.

The good thing about it being in the basement is that my wife can pretend it's not even there until it's done. Although she's coming around now that she realizes I intend to finish it.

I didn't know one could find bamboo at Home Depot. Great find and a very nice looking bar so far.

It's in the fencing area. 4'x 6' roll for $49.95

I cut it to fit and now have 100 little bamboo sticks. I think I'll make wind chimes with them.

A little stain. And cut some holes for the roof. Found some big poles for the trim but it was a chore since most where split in places. What is up with that?

Thanks! I'm pretty proud considering I have no idea what I'm doing. A lot like my life.
