Default Couldn't resist the retreat!

....just ordered it with a couple of tables........roll on tuesday..............i can see it with a whittled balcony and decking.....dark oak in colour...just can't do bright and snazzy colours.......i did try and think about it,imagined it white and fresh.....pale green..............i just see it shingled in dark oak stain and dark green shutters.........fishing rods and deck chair outside,fireplace in middle of room with t&g throughout......maybe white........or stained again.........dilemma time......don't think i'll be able to keep it in the box for another time.....

Sounds like a brill project, Im going to do one of mine as a log cabin, but I really must leave it in the box until the rest are done ... trouble is I keep getting side tracked lol

Sounds great. And l bet it dosen't stay in the box for long either.

l have two projects on the go and yet still, the other two Rocky Ridge houses call me from their boxes saying 'What can you do with us?'.
l'm not listening to them at the moment but they are getting louder......
