Thinking your keeping damp out can also mean your keeping damp in too. If it were me I would leave the stubs open so it can breath, but that's just my thoughts. I like what you've done so far & look forward to the rest.Chris.
Quote from: fivefingeredstyre on Jan 22, 2017, 10:51 pmNice work so far. It's all looking pretty sturdy. You won't regret plugging the tops of the corner posts.If I may make a suggestion, if you are looking at having your box sited outside, you might want to think a bit about venting the floor. I've learned from bitter experience that condensation can build up between the base and the floor and cause the floor to rot after a few years.I had to replace the floor in mine a couple of years beach as I didn't allow for this...
