hi guys - not sure myself [ok it's Saturday...] whether this is the right thread, but if you do nothing else today, make sure you take a look at this photo: http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/shortorder/2012/09/real_housewives_of_miamis_elsa.php

I actually thought it was a 'piss-take' but am not so sure...

Thought I'd whack a few work pics up. This is going to be a massive batten screen. Architect designed and a massive ego boost for the designer. Not particularly well designed either. The cool posts will be not be visible in the end. I reckon infill panels between the post would have looked much better but who am I to argue. So far we have formed up and poured the concrete plinth and we finished all the steel erection today. The timber mill stuffed up the order so no timber for a few more days.

Each " panel " is separate. The battens are fixed to the horizontal rails and the 2 nd panel battens just sit on top of the bottom row - until everything shrinks that is and then there will be about a 8 mm gap between panels. Its F14 Green hardwood and its going to move like a bitch, but architects are brilliant and I'm sure they know best. 1200 between fixings with no mid span fixing :rofl: :rofl: :pan :pan

1200  :pan  I spose looking at a photo the 1300 casement windows are no guide to guestimate because of the perspective... well... no guide to a dummy like me   :rofl:

NO MID SPAN FIXINGS???

There will be... in about oh, eight months (Summer then Autumn) and in Winter there you'll be with scaff and cleats charging double-time I hope.  It's pretty, but conventional but once that beautiful hardwood bows it's gunna look shocking.  What's the logical fix Mr Builder please (without running an all too sensible horizontal batten down the middle of the join to fix the joins)?

Thats the fix in a nutshell Brett. Run another horizontal batten mid span and screw fix from behind so the fixings are not seen. It wouldn't have to be big either. 50 x 25 ( same size as the battens) would be plenty

A few more progress pics of the taj ma batten screen. The architect dropped over the other day. It is quite intentional to have no mid span fixings. They ( architect and owner) want it to go all manky  :rofl: I think they shall get their wish  :D

Well Brett, I like to do things once and do them.....oh, why the batten screen ? The batten screen does face west as my sunburnt calves will confirm. The screen will be very effective in summer, even more so as the owner told me yesterday that there will be gardens in front of it and vines will grow all over the screen. Mega vertical garden, which is fruiten awesome. As for the scale and design, well what can I say, architects love that shit. The lines of form and function get blurred pretty easily with architects when given free reign  :D Good job to stick in the resume though  :thumb:

Ah ha, that will look amazing and if it cools the building then it will be doubly fantastic.  Yep, there is no debug that this will be good for your business.  It is eye catching and will get people talking/imagining!

Took the step of retiring from the restaurant industry and entered a new career of which i am passionate about, making great coffee and sharing with customers a few friendly words,a cuppa and perhaps a shoulder to cry on.

It's been a subdued start, but i prefer to start that way and earn my customers rather than starting with a lot of fanfare and hype and then losing clients over time due to a very average product and inconsistency.

For anyone who wants to pursue their dreams, i say go for it, you only have one life, live it now! ( mobile coffee van circa 2014 still on track...)

Hopefully it will be both financially and personally rewarding. Best of luck to you in your new venture.

You may not want to be completely run off your feet in the early days,  but do want to build business quickly to a level that makes you good money.

If you haven't already, contact your local paper and see if they will do a short piece on your business. Local papers quite like to publish info on new businesses. If course they will also want you to advertise with them...

 My local council also runs an online business directory, doesn't hurt to check with them too.

You might want to offer a 'free' deal coupon such as buy one coffee and cake before 11 am, get one free.  Brings in extra custom, at a time chosen by you and is not actually costing as much as a completely free offer. Plenty other options, but the idea is to build consistent business without costing you too much.

Thanks for your concern...and yes actually we were pretty crapped off.

Needless to say the dogs had all been repeatedly warned over a considerable period NOt to chase the chickens, and the chickens had all been warned NOt to go into the yard, but its just another example of the best way to get something to happen is to tell everyone NOT to do it.

We had been in Sydney for the day and upon our return, we found that the dogs had lovingly brought him to the back door for us to find.....a prize for us as the pack leaders ! Geez did they get that one wrong. We actually thought there was a possibility he would pull through and did everything we could. He seemed to gather strength over a period, unfortunately he expired sometime on Saturday arvo.

We are currently arranging a replacement for Stanley, a roosters work is never done.

Can anyone suggest a name for the new fella in the hen house?

Speaking of getting it wrong......I remember 3 years ago when our breeding dog lovingly brought a tiger snake back up to the house....snake between his teeth, all proud of himself, the snake vanquished. And 3 bottles of antivenine later he didnt seem quite so happy any more......
