The dining room

We built the dining room as an extension to the house, and when it's finished, with any luck, it should have a nice airy, outdoors feel.

We built it using pine, and much the same construction technique as we had when building our last house. So it was lovely to be back on familiar territory - digging holes for posts for the legs, cutting big wooden joists and beams and nailing them in place.

We did discover though that the house was much less square and straight than we had thought, and there wasn't a single right angle or straight line that we could use for measuring off! So we just built that dining room wonky as well - at least it will blend in with the original building!
