    looks great and a nice size too. why not get some old upvc windows of ebay and chop them into the front it will let a hole load more light in and look 100x better from your house and wouldn't cost more than a few ether

    Looking good Matt, got your PM will reply shortly, just picked up a pvc mis-measure window (9x4ft) myself for 50 notes off the guys at one of the pvc suppliers I use, so give some of them a call as you just build the frame to fit the window and they typically can't wait to get rid of them (cheap cheap cheap) my guy has got some smaller width windows and 2-3 doors going as well so it's looking promising here.

    Also give sheving ply a try for your internal walls, osb has a quite similar structural strength but the ply is a nicer finish and lends better to screws and fixings, it's a middle option to osb and far eastern construction grade ply, generally it's not external grade so needs treating but if you pop a vapour barrier up first you should be ok for a long long time.

    You're going to need curtains on those windows I reckon. Nice sign. Also I like a camera up so I can what's going on outside.
