I am not qualified or do this for a job, I just enjoy making things and this seemed like a good challenge.

I build this in my spare time. It took 9 months to build.

I managed to get a great deal of the materials second hand or recycled.

Other items I had to buy new, but shopped around on line for the best price.

The timber base was from A1 Lofts who did a great job of our loft conversion a couple of years ago. I emailed them and they emailed out to all their contractors to see if they had any spare timber. I met with Dan from A1 lofts in Harlow and filled up a van load of timber. http://www.a1pms.co.uk/

The 4 x 2s were from a recycling timber yard in Peckham.

The other items such as the windows and doors and the front maple cladding were second hand from ebay. I had to travel to collect items from all over Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire.

Other items I had to buy new, but shopped around on line for the best price.

I did all the work myself apart from the final fix and certification of the electrics. The electrician was Billy Keppel from Keps Electrical.

I have written and recorded and played the instruments to the music on this video. The track is here https://soundcloud.com/angus-mcgregor
