You and Matt got a lot done, considering the small pieces you're working with.
That's why I chose OSB for the wall material. I knew I was going to cork it. Being able to leave a gap helps fit the different sized corks and it allows it to flow. dd

Dorf Dude -

The planning on the cork wall looks like it was well worth it. Did any synthetic corks get mixed in yet? I better get over to the restaurants that are supposed to be saving corks for me, but it certainly looks like you will need a lot more.

What did you do or what are the plans for weatherproofing where the shed roof meets the house wall?

The other Schu - Dick

There are plastic corks already in there, about 20%. They blend in pretty well. The first priority of this wall is to look good but my very close 2nd is sound control. All the half round edges will break up echo's. It should really deaden the room. As for the weather proofing on the new room, wait for the pic's. It will become clear. dorf dude...

Campbell got the awning frame up. I then covered it. It can rain now! Insulation is almost finished on the entry way. I asked Matt about covers for my night lights. They are actually to bright. Here is what he came up with. I like it.. That's it for me today. Here are a couple pics, dorf dude...

That cork wall is absolutely fabulous, and genuinely unique.

Hey Shu...best place I know of for tile ideas is right here. You just have to dig around a bit as it's a big site. But well worth the trouble.

I finished up with the "Little things" tonight. How do you plunge cut into Styrofoam? I reach for my Fein Multi Master of course! Like a hot knife through butter. I capped the holes with another piece of styrofoam. I'm using LED's so heat is not an issue. If I had 50 watt Halogens in there I would have a big problem with heat. I got the roof tile latten laid out and screwed down. Tomorrow I can call it water tight! Here are a couple pic's, dorf dude...

I was shopping for materials today and found a cool light for above my entry door. It is a 3 watt LED. I think it looks great. Greg came by and gave me a hand with getting the roof tiles up. I started laying them out and "OOPS" I goofed up on the spacing. With these tile's you have no free play like with my house tiles. The spacing must be dead on and square. I will go back tomorrow and fix it. Put it up, take it down. Here are a couple pic's, dorf dude...

The ceiling looks real nice on the inside, similar to our plans for the back porch on our building project.

To have exposed beams adds a lot of external work. Well worth it in the finished product though. You can't beat the look or the insulation value. Power cables are the most difficult to deal with. You must think ahead with this type of construction Thanks for following. dorf dude...

Nice entranceway. I know what its like with those clay roof tiles. Once had to re-batten a 400m2 roof because the sample tiles we measured off were 3mm different in length to the ones that got supplied for the job.
