It is going to replace the original "spiderhouse" which is a converted summer house in the garden. the summer house will then become a bar so win win more beer and more spiders. What's not to like about that. :beer: :T:
So @Phil is this bar going to have dodgy liquor and a pole in the middle of the room!? Psml :p sounds like a place for a party lol

Have you been hands on with this project? I'm picturing you plastering and sawing lol. Is this a massive DIY project I'm wondering because I can't imagine you have enough free time to knock up a building in your garden lol

When I first saw this, I mistook the ivy for a bunch of slings escaping an enclosure and dispersing up the wall...maybe it's time for an eye test @Phil :D :D
