Well, I've never built a thing in my whole life. I'm a pianist and I'm in marketing...never had need for a drill or saw.
However, once my baby chicks started to turn into teenagers (it's so fast!) I hustled outside and put this together. I'm feeling good about it. Hopefully my girls will feel the same way. And...hopefully all of the really truly talented carpenters out there aren't cringing at the design.
Paint and roofing go up later this week. Then it's done! Oh yes...it has a name... Downton Abbey.
