      But Uncle Dick's pidgen loft in Blighty didn't have termites to contend with.

      Yes I agree with your comments. Some attractive stuff on their site. And if properly taken care of can last for yonks. I recall as a nipper, helping my Uncle Dick to build his pidgen loft. As far as I know, it's still there today. When I  first became a resident here, we bought intracate design wooden furniture; settee type, 2 chairs 2 tables, made of mahogany. Still like new today.

      Interesting link, thanks. I've got my fantasies about building a retirement home up in the mountains. The problem with wood is the maintenance that comes with it of course, but it's sure preferable to concrete and rebar.

      Well with so many in the UK relying on food banks, I guess things can indeed only get better for 'them'.
