Where are you doing this? I looks like it's all going on in your living room?

I guess you're doing it on the ground floor due to the weight of the water, humidity might be something you'll have to consider a lot as well, unless you water proof everything.

Will be watching this! keep up the good work!

I'm doing this in what was a second living room at the front of my house. It's the room across the hallway from the main living room.
Got a little bit done yesterday, will do a bit more again today.

I have made a gap for my waste pipe.


Still another 4-5 layers to put on top...



The door has to come off at some point when I build the land area, you can see the space I have left to walk about beside the radiator, about same distance at the front of the room too.


Going to have to take the pond out of the room...it's getting in the way.

That is a lot of work, but i'm following this thread also, always good to see people build enclosures.

That's going to knock the resale value of your home!

Have you thought about moisture in the air and how you're going to stop any damp craping in to existing plaster work etc?

DIY - Home Improvement - Do It Yourself (I think it's .com) if you hav eany questions on building, they're good over there.

Looks like it's going to be a great build, looking forward to seeing the end product.....

As for the damp I would suggest (if you haven't thout of it already) is to get the Walls tanked. You will need to do it now though before you go any further.

Good luck

That looks very tempting to do but I'm going to stick with the rhino linings company. They will be hired to spray the room.
