Buddy needs a Tiki dog house
My current delay from getting back in to boat/barge building is the need for a dog house for Buddy. Winter is closing in fast in Cleveland so I must move on this. I'm just going to add progress photos to this post instead of dragging the build out over many. So if your interested, come back and visit this from time to time.

Here is Buddy the day I picked him up in Louisville.
Goodies I could transport in my Edge
Matertial humped to the basement shop
6" posts will be the main legs
Cut & roll, cut & roll
Secured the post to a flat board to keep the orientation of the slots in line with each other
These slots are going to take about a B'zillion individual cuts. Hope the blade lasts
There must be some secondary use for all of these
First slot looks really good
Looks like an old juke box
One more to go
Slots done. room filling with smoke from saw blade
Start of frame
Main frame coming togeher
Front and rear half. Can't join them until I get them outside
Start of floor frame
More of the floor frame

The lower wall will be fixed, but the upper wall will swing open
Time to move this outside before it becomes a ship in a bottle
Glad it is a nice day
Assembling the floor frame to the wall
Starting to look like something?
Out of time and materials for now.
Front, sides, and rear panels hinge out.
Side panels closed
Side panels open
Yo Mon! The thatch will give Buddy an island like setting.
Using cedar shake shingles for the upper portions.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. A couple more days and the outside will be done.
