    I don't know, but I think 1 design per entry is better, easier to judge by comparisons, .....and more fair all around, esp for the contestant who doesn't have much free time.

    That would be my preference....but UP to YOU

    Are you going for most creative again with one of your decoupage offerings? I think a tattoo would be very original.

    well, yes sweetcheeks, but the glass in your bathroom window is that funny stuff that you cant see through properly, so it was a bit hard to tell if it was lardy or not.












    but you do need a shave.

    Not sure really.....depends on what 'decoupage' means ??


    anyway, think I finished the downstairs section last night....then looking through some old designs, thought I should change it for a more spectacular one....but nah, best keep the special stuff for later.

    Could I just ask...... is the plot 20 wide by 30 deep or vice versa??? Do we know what properties are either side of the plot (ok hypothetically talking) as probably not fields due to locations given?

    I may need a bigger fag packet if I have to go to 3 floors!!!

    I'm doing mine 20m wide but I think that should be optional unless there is a consensus to make it the same. There will be homes on either side. This is an urban setting and that means no uniformity of building type.

    I think everyone can relax for a while. There will be a small delay while the issue of a prize is sorted out. Watch this space for further announcements.

    I also think that the previous comp winner should have the honour of going first.

    I'm pretty much completed with mine but as yet we have no prize to offer yet. I think it's just you, me, Nawty and Splitlid. Maybe it will just have to be a friendly for bragging rights??
