  • Uncategorized – Barrel Top Wagons
    a fishing lodge to replace the dilapidated one that was currently rotting away on their woodland We discovered their needs included a sleeping platform to fit two adults and two children a wood burner and a veranda They were looking for a rustic cabin with just the floor insulated for now but with the option to retro fit insulation later on C M spent time looking at the finishing options and decided on green tin which would help the cabin blend in with it s surroundings and Douglas fir and larch featheredge cladding treated with wood preserver Flat packed cabin being delivered After ordering the materials we started the build in April the plan was to manufacture the cabin in the workshop flat pack it and then deliver and erect it After visiting the site a stunning 40 acre woodland which has the river Exe running through it we realised the biggest challenge would be getting the cabin to it s final destination It was going to the furthest most point on the site and there was no obvious answer We started to think maybe the neighbours would be good enough to let us take the trailer across their field And so after meeting with Ian and local farmer George it was decided that this would be the solution We set a date and worked towards it Thanks to accuweather we soon realised that the date set was looking like a wash out and had to bump the delivery by a further week What a good move this turned out to be the rain was horizontal and the wind was wild definitely not good weather for putting up a cabin The following week though was sunny dry and calm Perfect Supplies had been bought biscuits had been made tents had been packed and the trailer and vans were ready to go At 4am on a Monday morning the boys headed to the workshop checked one last time that they hadn t forgotten anything gave another pull on the ratchet straps and headed off By 8am they were at the meeting point where George lifted everything off with his tractor onto one big trailer and they all trooped across the field where George emptied the load at the closest point to the site The boys then manhandled the load across a stream and set about assembling the structure Sleeping platform and wood burner The site work took 8 days with blissfully good weather Trout were caught canoes paddled and fallen out of fires cooked on The result is a beautiful cabin set in stunning woodland ready for many years of family camping C M are delighted with their structure and have already spent several nights there This cabin is 12ft x 16ft with a 4ft veranda It is built using traditional timber frame construction has 150mm insulation in the floor 2 x 6 pane windows 1 x 9 pane window 1 x small window sleeping platform for 4 Windy Smithy Louis wood burner green tin roof

business award It was around twelve months ago that I heard of a Twitter competition run by Ex Dragons Den business man Theo Paphitis The premise of the weekly contest was simple tweet him your business with the SBS hashtag between 5pm and 7pm on a Sunday and he will choose six winners each week and retweet their details to his 500 000 followers the next day So I tweeted our details with no luck Until this January I tweeted to TheoPaphitis on the Sunday night and went about life as normal On returning from badminton at 10pm Monday I booted up the laptop and was rather stunned Instead of the normal 5 or 6 notifications on my Twitter account I had 160 170 195 230 WE D WON Respected bespectacled business man and all round good guy Theo Paphitis had noted our tweet looked at our business and decided we were worthy of the SBS Small Business Sunday award one of 6 to be chosen that night Well I was cock a hoop L il ole us Fancy that I was also stuck in a 140 character vortex trying to reply follow retweet and thank for following but as each notification got replied to another 20 appeared It was incredible Past winners are immediately

    Cornwall and did a number of tests involving hummus red wine and olive oil oh that was a tough night We decided on Treatex hard wax oil to use on the wood as it not only showed no signs of damage during the robust testing but had no odour And as these tables were going to be in use a few days after treating them this was important So it began and the tables and benches were festival bound in plenty of time to be arranged and dressed ready for the party people Hooes yurt ready for Glastonbury people Next up were Shebbear college who having seen the benches we produced for Hooes yurts decided they d like some too These didn t need to be collapsible but they did need to be tough enough to cope with 14 year old boys larking about on them so we chose Douglas fir from Dartmoor and finished them with Treatex organic UV oil topped with Danish oil They obviously liked them because they immediately ordered another load Lovely Douglas fir bench seats perfect for that first kiss Hooes yurts have since returned with a request for a bar same spec lightweight collapsible sturdy and light coloured to match their lovely banqueting tables and yurts Spruce was used again to make a solid chunky top again hard wax oil by Treatex to finish and then birch ply to make two shelves which can unbolt with the sides folding in to make a beautiful feature bar which can be easily transported And off it zoomed to take it s place in amongst the party Collapsible Spruce and birch ply bar for Hooes yurts So you see it s not just about the sizable glory pieces the big and brilliant wagons and such we love
