Granddads House
« on: May 02, 2015, 06:15:02 PM »

I decided to build a new Springer for Wicksteed this year, my granddaughter calls my shed Granddads House. So with that in mind I give you Granddads House, the tow hook does function and the taller bollards are all bolted through the deck I want to try towing with her at the month

Love it, that's the fantastic thing about springers, the crazier the idea the better it looks!

I think the window should slide open, then hit a switch that triggers a sound bite...
Grandpa will be seen inside the window, and yell, "You kids get off my lawn!"  %%

Suprisingly (or not for the Scandinavian members) there is a similar sort of thing regularly seen on Finnish waterways


They are essentially floating saunas

That is just mad. A floating Sauna? I suppose they don't have so far to run to take a dip in horribly cold water.
