Greetings all. Posting tonight as tomorrow I escape for the day to drive to the Seattle Miniature Show.
I wanted to "show and tell" about how my husband resolved my problem of a desired extension for the garden courtyard of my mini house.
My house is quite large. In fact if I make it any wider or longer it will not be able to be taken down the stairs. I felt that it would not be complete without a small parterre off the kitchen.
Bruce built a new platform to support the house and on the kitchen side made slides that could be extended to support a matching form to fit flush with the support platform.
I will be able to landscape this form and slide it into place but it will be readily removed if and when I want to take it downstairs or out of the house.
I am very pleased with his work and show it proudly with the idea that it may help others that have the same dilemma.
I hope that the photos explain, if not, just drop me a line and I will expand.
Regards to all.
