I've been meaning to build a dio for at least a year,  but now I actually have room.
So spured on by Dal's superb study build..I though I had better get on with it lol!

Here's where its going.

And this is the start of the framework.  There will be a permanent dio on the bottom with the facility to put a lid on so that I can then create temporary dios on top. It sounds complicated,  but hopefully it will make sense once I have got a bit further.

Nice carpentry work! With a solid structure like this to work from, I'm sure the end result will be fantastic!

Don't forget to update with work-in-progress pics!

It's no big secret. The plan for the permanent dio is an office/ study.

Well of course as you will no doubt realise, standards here on AMMO are high, but I'm very sure you will rise to the task!
Can't wait to see your progress reports!

Bought these from a charity shop today. Haven't got a clue what I'm going to do with them yet, but Dal says they come in handy.

So once again it's all Dals fault lol! lol!

New and higher walls added. Plus the wallpaper went on today. Although it's much shinier than I was expecting...hopefully not too shiny lol!

looking good Chris, you might find once you start adding things, like skirting, picture frames and furniture it will calm the shiny walls down a bit cheers
