Nigeybuildingness – hardly any bodge at all January 8, 2008

Filed under: Woodcraftyness — Canvas Summer Nige @ 10:38 pm

Now-middle daughter got a Teifoc kit for her Birthday back in September.  It’s taken til now, but we managed to focus at the weekend and construct our first test piece:

Model of the out-building  outhouse 2

Teifoc is some germanic or scandavian concept that is a mini-brick and cement building kit.   There are some plans for big mansions, with different roof materials, garage doors/windows etc etc.  Then when you’ve finished you can submerge the whole building in water and the cement will dissolve so that you can re-use the bricks!  We haven’t done that yet…. holding on to our first construction effort for at least a few days first…..

By the way, the first effort above is a replica of the outbuilding we have here at home.. :>
