The treehouse is finally finished!
So now all the posts have been attached and the fence has finally been constructed, the treehouse is finished.
Out of the 12 posts, I carved out 4 of the ornaments; two of which you know about anyway; the Bust of Austin and the Rubis Cube. I also painted one completely white and wrote the names of the people who helped build it. My final post was a set of 3 stairs that I painted blue, green and red to symbolise a Stairway To Heaven, hence the title of this update.
Another project I have been doing is a mosaic for the fountain at the entrance to the place. Previously it was painted blue and then had a load of stones just thrown in the bottom and it looked really unattractive so after the stones had been cleared out, I was given a box of tiles and asked to design a mosaic. After much deliberation, a lot of scrapped ideas and a good few scale models, I decided to play it by ear and see what would happen if I just placed them in the fountain and then grouted them in place. So far I’ve only placed a few in before the rain started so I, unfortunately, had to call it a day.
Also, don’t forget to check out (and like) the Facebook page where I’ll be posting more photos and exclusive updates!
