The eating/cooking hall is looking great, I really like the look of the battens and windows.

Thanks for the nice comments, my friends.

I'm found some time to work on the kitchen. It sounds a bit optimistic to hope I could complete it before the deadline but it's certainly worth trying.

Here are a few not too artistic pics of the framing under the kitchen. The five frames were assembled in a jig, and were then glued together upside down as show the two first pictures to be sure that once turned, the heights would be the same. The two last show the structure with its right orientation, the second shows how the kitchen fits its basis. Next step : glueing this assembly to the small wood basis without the platform and kitchen, and make the relief. It might take some time...

That is a really nice looking deck. It really shows off the kitchen building.

Always a good time following your work.

Looking Good Frederic. That's of course no surprise as everything you build does. I appreciate you taking the time to show us these progress shots.

Frederic, nice work on the frames. Is there a reason one bent doesn't have a beam across like all the others?

The swing-out and sliding windows really add life to a structure that could easily have a more static look. Very sweet, Frederic! [:-bigmouth]

That is a very nice job on the underframe, Frederic. Did you make a jig to help out?

Nice work Frederic. It brought back memories of the Mike Lynch build. FYI Mike hasn't built anything for two years. He is back to building street rods.
