    pretty cool huh?

    Inside room is 96"x48"x64"

    Front deck has the same 8'x4' footprint.

    6x6 posts are 48" in length each.

    so those are some really deep holes.

    The Roof is 8'x10'... I don't know what else to say other than I had alot of fun with this project.

    oh yeah, I almost forgot!

    Siding panels are LP SmartSide!

    100% all me... yeah, I just got a basic idea and went with it.

    I did look at the internet for technique ideas... I never notched large posts like that before. I read about how that's done for deck construction, so I notched 1 1/2" by 5 1/2" out of two adjacent sides of each post, tied all four 6x6 post together with 2x6's. The left and right 2x6's caught those 4x4 posts. Heavy plywood was screwed to the floor joist on the inside while the outside was decked. I built the whole thing from visualization. Working as a sheet metal man for the past ten years made it kinda easy because I really hadn't much in the way of carpentry experience. The basic skills translated. It's all cut/measure, hammer/screw and thinking. It took me a while to get it. If I had a solid plan the entire time it would have come much easier.

    one thing to note.. the whole project was done with 4 sheets of SmartSide. The front facade was done with drops from the rear, left and right walls. I thought that was kinda clever.

    Nice start. What's the next step? Will you be wiring it for heat, A/C, TV, etc? I'll bet it's the most popular spot for the kids in the neighborhood.

    Paul is five years old and in kindergarten.

    this is us at the Vikings game September 28th.

    [IMG]

    he's my buddy. He's gone to see the Titans in the 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 seasons.

    I want to sit here and dig up various pictures of him at games over the years but i just don't feel like it. I've got a tea kettle on the stove and I'm gonna make iced tea instead.
