Recycled summer house

Post: #277624 old tree man

With our old bones getting progressively stiffer I am embarking on the idea of a summer house to enjoy our garden for longer than just the summer, so a friend said he can get me loads of large lorry pallets as they only burn them or chuck them out :shock:, as we all are in the same financial boat I could not afford to buy a " propper" one :roll: so here goes, if I can remember how to post a pic (any advice on pic posting would be greatly appreciated ) I will try to show you my progress, I aim to have window boxes and a small stove for a bit of warmth (made from an old gas bottle) as we are quite high up on the yorkshire hills. :flower:

I've only ever posted pictures via Flickr, Russ, but I'm guessing it's similar for other publicly accessible servers.

Post your picture to Flickr then alter the size to fit here - I can't remember what the size restrictions are but it tells you if it's too big, when you try to post it here. Right click on your photo to find its web address, copy it, click on the Img button above (here) and paste.

I'm sure that's as clear as mud, but hopefully it'll jog your memory as to how to do it. :roll:

And we'd love to see your summer house.

Doesn't look like that links valid, Russ. If you go to it and copy the link in the address bar at the top. Then I'll have another look.

I've found it. I think it might be too big but I'm not sure. Someone a bit more in the know might take a look. However the link to it is
