#Wifey set me the challenge of building a cabana by our pool area to make better use of some somewhat wasted space and of course create a beautiful, relaxing space for us. So, I thought I'd post some progress shots along the way. Bear with me frequency/timing wise as I'm building it on the odd day I have free so will likely be done over a few weekends.
Happy to answer questions along the way and would love to hear what you think 🙂
The "wasted space"
Double rebate join on all posts.
Gives a professional finish up top and allows the fixings to be more easily hidden.
Setting the posts.
The two posts on the rear boundary were Dynabolted to limestone retaining wall and concreted in, while the other two posts were concreted 600mm into the ground.
Concrete footing for breeze block feature wall.
This was just marking it out (forgot to get an equally boring photo of the concrete in the hole/trench).
Testing the pointed overhang.
At the same time as confirming all levels are bang on, I was checking how much we want the pointed ends to overhang.
Breeze block feature wall is next...
