Another lotto win dream...

Lotto dream?

With all the pine trees and river stones in Enzed, this design should be eminently achievable. The only drawback would be when Nanny adds her sodding requirements.

It shouldn't require a Lotto win. Spend a bit on logs and logbuilder skills; save some on framing and insulation. Make sure the builder who's going to be doing the non-log framing, window joinery & installation etc. knows what he's doing.

OB,

I'm disappointed in you: too much glass, especially at ground level, makes this home harder to defend against feral youths and nanny-state snoops/inspectors.

I recommend something in cut stone with arrow slits for windows and an outer permiter wall that has glass shards in the top.

BTW, that bit was tongue in cheek. Hard to convey that in cyberspace sometimes. :-)

You forgot the machine gun nest Stephen, knowing OB though, he's two steps ahead of us, he won't publicly say anything about the moat filled with hungry, ill-tempered crocs. Kommisar Klark will find out about them when she stops by for a spot of tea!!

I'm really going to show the perimeter defenses in a public photo!

It's a lotto win because the wife doesn't like them!

She wants beachfront, I want mountains- we need a lotto win so we can each have our own holiday home!
