Looks excellent,it's a work of art. Love the Pub sign!



My son has one similar size and similar situation (he didn't build it)with a climbing plants structure over it. The darned heron still managed to attack! So he has it covered with netting now.

I think you would need a better liner and then its only a case of fitting a heater and blower would be easy if you had the parts
