So the Beetle arrives Tuesday next week

To make it all workable I'm having to have a little re-shuffle with the caves ...... and biuld a third one :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

The good thing about photo shop is I can see how its going to look ( photo attched )

I started work on it today and hoping it will not take too long to make / build

The trailer is off to a friends house for a while again to free up space

Exciting time ahead guys

So as this is a split screen forum I'm guessing I should not do the biuld on here ?

F1 time now so I'm out of here

Over and Out

His HOME !!!!!!!!!

His in quite a bad state underneither ... Just as I expected really ..... :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

managed to get him into the garage but its all very messy and un-organised as I took away two shed to get the extra area freed up for the
new cave .... so until I finish it I'll have to suffer with a massive MESS EVERYWHERE !!!!

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :oops: :oops: :oops: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

One more day off work tomorrow so lets hope I can get the New cave water tight ( roof & the back wall of it anyway ) the front will have to wait until I can get back into it and once I have the Garage door area done then the people will be out to measure for the new door to be made and fitted .... They say thats 10 days from with its ordered :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Want this sorted out asap so I can get back to being organise and then I can make a start on the beetle

Doesn’t that garage extension cut out a lot of light into the front of the house? You must have a very understanding wife as there’s no way I’d get away with that :lol:
Lucky for me that my garage is over the other side of the drive so no issues with light or how much noise I make
