Screenhouse in the woods


Jules, I have never had the pleasure of building one of those roofs in the traditional manner.

There is a book out on the subject - probably a few I guess really, but one in particular by a fellow Asby-Brown I think the name is. I could well have that name wrong. He covers all the details of the Japanese version of that construction. I can dig up the name if you like...I think I have it in my library somewhere.

And don't kid yourself, your carving more than measures up, it's beautiful.

Screenhouse in the woods


THE END

Iíve finally installed the lattice panels I was fighting with last winter, and the screen house is officially complete!

As public service, Iíd also like to give everyone a heads up on the best hammock chairs ever made: Jimís Hammock Chairs. I bought one for mom for her birthday, and my god itís fantastic - I want one in every room of my house.

Thanks to everyone who offered their advice and/or support in this thread - you guys are awesome!

Jules4, I’ve got to say that from your first post and your SU drawings to now I’ve gone from skeptic to admirer.

I truly appreciate your attention to detail. After all it’s the little details that sets one project off from the rest, and all of this for Mom, good job.

If I start another awesome project you guys will be the first to know. My current project is a rather un-awesome attempt to remove some of the concrete from my grandmother's backyard here in Tampa, FL

BTW, you all should watch out for that WillyT character, anyone who voluntarily chooses to work in construction in this open-air sauna has to be seriously unhinged

The fireplace works really well too - the boulders hold heat for hours, and the tall sides and back allow it to hold a massive load of wood if you want to generate a deep bed of coals for cooking.

I honestly couldn't tell you how long the whole project took, I know it amounted to at least 6 weeks of 12+ hour days, but there were a lot of partial days too. I can tell you that it definitely took a lot longer than the two weeks I'd initially thought it would take

(Don't let the length of time it took me but you off doing something like this though - I didn't have any power available so was using all hand tools, it would have gone way faster with power tools.)

Jules, I just came across your post and I am speechless. I can't comprehend that you did this alone and without power tools yet! All I can say is you are my kind of woman. I hope you enjoy many years in your beautiful screenhouse!

Thanks - I have trouble comprehending it too; I've actually had to re-read this thread once or twice just to convince myself that I built all that

Her grandmother lives (lived?) just across the bridge from me. I had hoped to meet her sometime when she visited.

Thanks guys!

I was very happy to see the email notification for this thread pop up - I loved this project! The screenhouse is still going strong and much beloved by mom - she's had drop-shades made for the windows so it's even possible to escape from wind and rain now.

Unfortunately I finally found work in my actual profession a year and half ago and that's put the kibosh on my DIY enterprises - stupid real job .
