    The steel bottom of this "woonark" (= Dutch for: a stationary houseboat) was getting old and needed too much maintenance, so they putting it in/on a maintenance free concrete pontoon.

    I'll hope Ted gets up early, so he might have a chance to put some of the info in his project.

    Good luck Ted, and please keep us posted how it goes . . :cool:

    Ted, if not finished in time, then don't say so, but offer in the bottom line of your project to give an oral explanation about the latest insights, that came to you by your very recent research on the topic, or offer a supplement about this to be submitted later, in a few days or so.

    Good luck !

    Good grief Ted.

    You have had hours of information presented to you, heaps of professional advice ..

    You are really making life difficult by being so vague going from "no price limit" to " I'm only a poor 16 yo"

    Is the teacher going to give you a hard time for not getting your homework in on time ?

    hhaha I know it seems vague but theres too many factors limiting my project if I use sustainability, availability and cost of materials. So I decided to have an open budget. My project is expensive anyway as im using glass and materials, which includes Pilkington glass films and I hoping to use porcelanosa krion (plastic) for a majority of my buildings exterior

    thats very useful thank you, are the guides the ones posted under by Angelique? also what do you mean by services. I prefer seeing little sketches like that than really complicated explanations because I need to add the parts on my house
