And I am reading, and reading on this forum ;-) I love it. And since I will not find time to start my house form a year or two, there is no harm gathering all the info I might need.
It is a bit difficult for me to post pictures of my two former attempts, because they are at my brother's and my sister's house and they are hardwerking persons, like me, with not much free time on hand. Pics wil come someday soon.
I can, however, place a picture of the one I want to build, the plans are in Dutch, which is perfect for me, but they advice to use MDF or Multiplex, both not my favorites.
I prefer limewood or birch.
I have already thought of a theme; the former house I build was the real house my grandfather build for his family (12 kids), he was the owner of greenhouses and land to grow vegetables on. My other grandfather had the same occupation, I will build this new project in his and my grandmother's honour. Especially hers, since she was such a lovely lady, tall and slim, caring and lovely. My grandfather was a small, strong and hardworking man with little o no understanding for little girls, haha.
Once I stayed a few days with them and on the first day she asked: "do you like cauliflower?" I did, so we had a great meal, but since the land gave more cauliflower they could sell we ate cauliflower every dag... It took me very long to like eating the vegetable again...
I have read that some of you name the house, I would like mine (in the future) to be called Margot, my grandmother's first name. (Pronounced as Margóó, but then with the famous Dutch 'G' ;-)
The roof can be opened, and so can the front: the part on the right with balcony.
The 'greenhouse or conservatory' on the left must look a bit more like a glass house with of course cauliflower and vines - grapes, her favorites.
