    it snowed, so naturally and me and a few close friends stopped being embittered, cynical teenagers and reverted to the level of frollicking innocent nutters. we decided that we'd build a house on clapham common out of snow, which took about 4 hours. but seemed at the time the single greatest thing that we, or anyone else had EVER achieved

    here is the result

    construction of the roof

    the inside, took out the bookshelves from my room at home and used them to shore up the roof, great escape style

    and this is the interior, notice the original beam ceiling and how the central pillar nicely divides up the space of the central living area lol, the pics are bad quality and it was a little smoky in there, but u can kinda see what it was like

    and then, just like that, she was gone, replaced by nothing but our memories and a short, angry man yelling about "bloody kids ruining the green", thus is the temporary nature of snow...

    only 18 years till the next big snowfall, start the countdown!!
