I have a request

2023-06-04 02:00:02.310494+02 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I have a request: Show me your favorite little free library type structures. I've seen the Adult Bookstore one, which is awesome, but I think not quite the vibe of our house. There are a bunch of examples of off-square kid-themed libraries, but we don't pass on a ton of kids books. Thinking like Japanese temple architecture, maybe, I like whimsy, but... not kid-themed in this case. I'm trying to figure out how to do like a Bombay chest side without spending a gazillion dollars on lumber (gluing up 3/4" ipe chunks, which I have, into a curve sounds like a huge challenge). Just: inspiration on something for the front walk!

I have been pondering building a LFL, but as our neighborhood HOA only allows buildings in three styles ( pueblo revival, territorial revival and ranch style ), I’ve been looking into one of the first two. Though I may go full pueblo deco too.

We also have about two gallons of elastomeric stucco left over from when they restuccoed our house, I’ll probably use that for a finish.

Anyway, I don’t have any examples to show you, but I’ve been working on a floor plan for my LFL (most houses here are single-story and spread out, while a LFL likely wants to be a two-story affair), and this might be the summer I build it.

I’m any case, I was hoping to see some responses to this, too.

All <cite>ed text will point to the Flutterby knowledge base. Two enters (ie: a blank line) gets you a new paragraph, special treatment for paragraphs that are manually indented or start with "#" (as in "#include" or "#!/usr/bin/perl"), "/* " or ">" (as in a quoted message) or look like lists, or within a paragraph you can use a number of HTML tags:
