Thanks both for your comments. First, I got the measurement of the door wrong, its 100mm tall! I think your right about the roof, it does look quite tall. I'm also thinking of making the window a bit deeper. Picture shows what I think I will take off http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee28/RichGn15/...

Hi
How is that fastened down to the board? Do you have a pricture of it without the CD in place? And does it turn easily? I have been trying to build one, but I can't get it to turn freely.
