Here is a project I have been working on..The conservatory will sit on the 3x3 foot concrete slab I have pored shown in the middle of the photos..I do have one section of the garden wall finished and everything from the scale brick to the custom handrails on top is made with my own molds..The conservatory will be placed on the slab once the garden walls are completed..Everything is made with concrete and my hope is for everlasting fun with this garden..

Exquisite! Good job you put the coke bottle next to the wall, it's hard to get an idea of the scale otherwise! Did you make the conservatory model too?

I wish I could build like that: no matter how carefully I measure everything always comes out lopsided!

That is just lovely.

You can bet that there is nothing square in my project..In fact I make it uneven to give it and aged appearance..So it sometimes works out best if its not perfect...

I feel the same way you do about the Victorian era. I would love to go back in time and spring open the double window pain to my 3 story mansion and look out at a true blue sky and take my first fresh breath of clean air..And thanks for the comment..You made my day!

Oh wow that looks amazing! Architecture from that era was fantastic. I live in the Midwest and they're becoming rarer these days. Post more pics so I can watch your progress!

Wow. That's just amazing workmanship. Did you make the little bricks yourself in that foam mold?
I can't wait to see it finished.
