That Starfleet research station is too good for him. I'd have McCoy transferred to the Utopia Planitia yards.

I am rubber, you are glue.

I'd ask you to rephrase that, but you've already gone too far.

I'll be uploading some more photos in the morning. The building is looking a tad 'industrial', but that's because it hasn't got it's fancy shiplap cladding on yet. Also it has no door, just a big gaping hole.

Hmm, you know, back to the topic: we've been ignoring the most important question of all! What colour should the shed be painted?!?

Lightbulb Colored only

No color at all.

Not black, or unpainted...but literally the color of nothing.

You should rebuild it using non-Euclidean geometry and paint it an unknowable colour.

Post Underground

Yes, to Huz you must listen.

Ordinary humans should be so confounded by the shed's nature that they go into a startled state of denial on first sight. Lifelike 25th century art droids should guard the entrance, with Ganymede orchids growing on the ceiling. There will be intelligent monkeys in plastic zoot suits playing ragtime jazz. Absinthe should be on hand to help one adjust.

Where is the unicorn hitching post?

I don't have a unicorn. My pterodactyl is hungry.

Huz, how about you put some 100,000€ into this crowdfunding campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-dreamlands

Otherwise, this looks like it'll fail.

Lol, completely forgot that I hadn't posted anything up to be honest. Four kids, multiple jobs, trying to fix up a house, build a big art shed etc, it'll do this to you lol.

Note it isn't clad yet, and isn't painted, so it looks a bit rough and ready.

Thumbs up Housing the muse

So when is the art shed warming party?

Looks good. Are you going to plant ivy around it? That plus a bronze sun dial and you'll be ready to roll.

Lol, it's not painted, that green stuff is just timber preserve to stop the 'shell' turning to weetabix. It'll be clad in this stuff:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiplap, and painted a proper rich dark green.

and all the window/door frames will be sanded, primed and painted dark brown like the doors.

I made the window frames myself btw, the double glazed glass panels (all six of them) were 18 (3 each) from a local reclamation yard.

Cool Guy Square and level

Looks great. Do you do brickwork?

I've always wanted a barbecue pit in my back yard.

Yesterday I was hammering out a ridiculously large dent on the missus Nissan Micra, skimming it with filler and priming it ready for spray paint. I shall be spraying the entire side of the car next week, and buffing the rest of the paint to match.

Don't worry, it's an age thing, you seem to pick up 'dad skills' which is why everyones dad seems to know how to do everything.

For the record, I don't think I can afford the cladding for the shed/studio until next month now, as I'm in overdraft city a week before payday, but we shall see.
