Mark and pre-drill the holes and attach the last two hinges with screws. Your a-frame walking area will thank you. Photography Brian Cassey. For tips on making a trendy platform bed frame, read on!

Set the screens out on a flat surface to assemble the slimline frames around them. Push the top of the frame against the top of the screen and use a 3mm bit to drill a hole through the centre of the frame and screen, stopping before piercing the front of the frame. Secure with the supplied screw.

Slide on the frame sides, with the ends overlapping the top. On each, mark the centre, mm from the top and mm from the base, then use a 5mm bit to drill right through.

Remove the sides and use a 12mm bit to drill through the screen holes only to create larger holes for expansion. Tip: The 12mm holes allow for the screen to expand and contract with temperature changes. Position a level down all four sides of these posts — the bubble in the vial should be perfectly centred each time. Photography Cath Muscat. Project, instructions and steps photography Natasha Dickins. Remove the protective film from all parts of the frame before reinstalling the sides.

Position the base overlapping the sides, drill through the centre with a 3mm bit, stopping before piercing the front of the frame.

Tip: Use a felt-tip pen to mark out the holes. Brackets are attached to galvanised posts to hold the screen bases. To install them, mark mm from the top of each post. Position the bracket with the holes over the mark and drill with a 3mm bit.

Secure with supplied self-drilling screws. Tip: Position brackets flush with the inside of the posts for each screen, with two for the centre post. To sink the posts, dig the first hole with a narrow post shovel to mm deep. Dry-fit the post using a level to check for plumb. Check the centre of the second post, measuring mm between the outside of the brackets.

Repeat digging and checking the remaining post holes. Position a 2m-long offcut on the ground in front of the holes. At the filled hole, check for plumb and clamp to the offcut. Repeat mixing, pouring concrete and clamping each post, leaving to cure for at least 24 hours. Tip: Clamping onto the offcut keeps the posts upright and prevents them from sinking.

Wearing a mask, open a bag of concrete in a wheelbarrow, add two litres of water and use a shovel to mix thoroughly. Add an 80mm layer of gravel to the base of each hole, lightly soak with water, add 20mm of concrete and reinstall the posts.

Shovel the concrete around the posts, using a trowel to compact and remove air bubbles. Position the screens in the brackets, then lift to be flush with the top of the posts and clamp to hold. Drill into the posts through the holes in the frame sides with a 5mm bit, securing the supplied screws using an 8mm hex head bit and avoiding over-tightening. Tip: Lifting the frames off the bottom of the brackets before securing allows space for expansion.

Remove the clamps to flip the box by nailing through the top and base. Measure 20mm from the sides and 10mm from the edges to secure five evenly spaced nails. Tap the heads below the surface with a round-head centre nail punch.

In store, have the panel cut to a top, base and shelf, each mm wide; the remaining piece cut in half ensure the sides are exactly equal and the Tasmanian oak cut in half for two feet. Tip: The sides are slightly less than mm, allowing for the width of the blade. Position the top and base between the sides, applying adhesive along the cut ends, clamping at the front and back.

Wipe away excess adhesive with a damp cloth, leaving to dry. Tip: Ensure the best sides face outwards, with the base facing up. Turn the box upside down to position the feet along the sides, 10mm from the edge and 30mm from the front. Apply some adhesive and secure with five nails into the base, at least 20mm from the ends to avoid splitting.

To mark out the shelf brackets, on the front of the box, use a combination square to measure mm up the sides from the outside of the base. Position the combination square on the mark to make lines inside. Flip box to finish marking the lines from the back.

Smooth over the nail heads with timber filler, leaving to dry. Sand the box all over with grit abrasive paper to remove excess filler and pencil marks, sanding flat areas along the woodgrain and rounding over all the edges and corners slightly. On the inside, from the front and back, measure mm along the lines to position brackets, securing screws into the sides with a screwdriver.

Position shelf, securing brackets underneath with screws. Tip: Create screw pilot holes by tapping a nail through the brackets. Wipe over the box with a damp cloth to remove dust. Apply two coats of furniture oil, rubbing it into the timber with a cloth and leaving to dry after each. Tip: We used an easy trigger-pack oil then finished with a cloth. For our boxes, we cut four pieces mm long, mm and mm, but you can adjust the sizes to suit.

On the pine, mark mm from the end and use a mitre box with handsaw to cut. Dry-fit the frame by positioning a side flush against the base, the top flush against the side, the remaining side flush against the top and over the base. Tip: Work on a flat surface to keep the joints straight and accurate. Apply adhesive along the endgrains and reassemble the frame. Wrap tape firmly around the middle, checking the joint angles with a combination square. Wipe away excess adhesive with a damp cloth and then set aside to cure.

Working around the sides, hammer two nails into each joint, 10mm from the ends and sides, then remove the tape. Tip: Nailing too close to the sides can split and damage the pine. Use grit abrasive paper with a sanding block to remove any adhesive from inside and outside the frame, rounding over the edges and corners slightly for a professional finish. On the back of the frame, measure along the top to find the centre. Position a sawtooth hanger, tap in the supplied nails and hang on an installed screw to suit your wall type.

Tip: To support larger frames, position D hooks either side. Using a mitre box with handsaw, cut the Tasmanian oak into two mm-long ends, three mm lengths as the sides and centre divider, two 78mm-long dividers and two mm-long bases, checking the lengths of each item are exactly the same.

To glue up the frame, apply adhesive along the end-grain of the sides and butt the ends against them. Wipe away excess adhesive with a damp cloth and leave to dry. Using 12mm-thick timber helps keep it simple to cut and secure without requiring power tools.

To assemble the dividers, apply adhesive along the end-grain of the short dividers. Wipe away excess adhesive. Leave to dry. Tap two nails through each end, 20mm from the edges, to secure into the sides. Use a combination square to mark up the centre of the dividing pieces on the outside of the frame to secure with nails.

Run some adhesive around the underside of the box, including along the dividers. Position the base pieces, then secure into the dividers and frame with nails.

Wipe away any excess adhesive with a cloth and leave to cure. Apply adhesive to the end-grain of the divider assembly the ends of the short and long pieces. Wipe away excess adhesive and leave to cure. Smooth all over with grit abrasive paper to remove pencil marks, rounding over the edges and corners for a professional finish. Apply two coats of furniture oil with a cloth, setting aside to dry after each.

To use a hammer, grip the middle of the handle. With your other hand, hold the nail at the top and tap until it stands upright, then move your hand to hold the piece to finish driving in the nail.

Project, styling and steps photography Sam van Kan. Instructions Natasha Dickins.

Method On the marine plywood, measure mm from each end and the sides to mark the centre of two circles, each just over mm in diameter. On the length of clear pine, measure mm from one end and centre a hole using an 8mm drill bit. From the other end, measure 50mm to centre a hole using a 4mm drill bit. Use a 20mm screw to secure the pine to a centre mark through the hole closest to the end.

Put a pencil through the hole on the opposite side and push the pine to mark out a circle, then repeat on the other end of the panel. Position the panel on a stable surface to cut the circles with a jigsaw, ensuring there is unobstructed space for cutting underneath, cutting with one hand while pushing down and turning the panel with the other.

Evenly position the four pieces of treated pine inside the tyre, then centre one of the circle cutouts on top. Secure the circle cutout to each piece with two 40mm screws. Tip: Drill pilot holes using a 4mm bit before installing the screws. Flip the assembly over to centre and secure the remaining circle cutout.

Round over both circles cutouts using a random orbital sander to smooth off the sharp edges. Begin coiling the sisal rope over the screws to create a tight coil to neatly cover the circle cutout.

Work in sections of five rounds of rope, first applying adhesive in a zigzag pattern, then coiling. Hold each section with masking tape and leave to dry for about five minutes, or until the adhesive becomes tacky and holds the rope. Work over the circle cutout and down the side of the tyre, flipping the assembly over at halfway to work towards the base. About 10 rows under, cut the rope, apply adhesive to the end and secure with a 20mm screw, leaving to dry thoroughly before use.

Dry spell Tough enough to take the heat, these hardy natives are our favourites when water is scarce False sarsaparilla A sprawling native covered with a sea of purple blooms in spring, this can creep up structures up to 2m tall.

If left untrained, it will cascade over the sides of retaining walls or grow densely over garden beds. Plant in full sun or part shade and in well-draining soil. Prune back after flowering to keep it tidy. Weeping lilly pilly This medium shrub or large tree has a beautiful lightly weeping habit. Its wavy-edged leaves start off pink and turn various shades of green as the foliage matures, and are the perfect backdrop for the fluffy white flowers that appear in summer.

Once established, it can tolerate dry periods and little maintenance. Hardy once established, but will perform best with an annual dressing of a native controlled-release fertiliser.

Plant in a full sun to part shade position and water regularly at first to encourage fast growth. Native daisy The sweet daisy-like blooms on this native low-growing shrub are ideal for mass planting in rockeries, hanging baskets or filling in gaps in native or coastal garden beds.

Can tolerate full sun or dense shade and, once established, can go through periods of extended drought. Soft mauve, lilac-blue or white flowers with yellow centres appear almost all year round and attract bees and butterflies.

Lomandra With many varieties to choose from, this is one of the toughest native grasses. Its strappy foliage forms a tuft-like habit, which lends itself to a variety of uses, from specimen planting in pots or beds to mass plantings along borders.

If your porch area is precious and used up, you will have to get creative about wood storage. It will stay dry and be easily accessible when you need it. When your a-frame cabin is in a prime location, you have to think about how best to meld it into its surroundings.

A lakeside cabin would definitely benefit from a dock for fishing, boating and swimming. No one can say no to an ocean front cabin. Install a boardwalk to the beach to make the ocean easily accessible for all family and friends. As we mentioned above, really good cozy cabins supply a way to have a fire indoors so you can roast marshmallows any time of the day or night.

Make sure you dedicate a corner of your a-frame to your stove or fireplace. You may think that your two straight walls provide the only opportunity for natural light. However, living in an a-frame is the best time to use skylights. Have you built on to your a-frame cabin? Keep the original lines by having those slanted exposed beams in your home. Many people might think that getting rid of the wood paneling in an a-frame is the best thing.

While you consider it though, also think about how lovely an updated wood paneling would be for a warm and rustic living space. Those big glass panes will welcome more light into your home than you could ever do with white paint.

Want to know what one of the biggest kinds of windows are? A door. Add some big glass doors to your living space to bring in more light and make entertaining completely easy. With a smaller space to start with, everyone will benefit from the ability to hang out in one large space together.

Are you lucky enough to have an amazing view from your a-frame windows? Be sure you make your living room layout facing this view so all your relaxing can be done while you watch sunrises, sunsets, storms and any other weather. Make good choices with your furniture and opt for minimal decorating to make a small space seem bigger. Most a-frames have a loft or second story but how do you accommodate stairs?

Does your two story a-frame already have a normal staircase? Use the space wisely by installing shelving underneath. Design yours in a way that creates a step and a shelf so you combine two purposes for one piece. Your a-frame walking area will thank you. Are there beams in your a-frame bedroom? Paint them black to make your space feel more modern. You probably already have all the rustic decor to keep the cabin feel so it could use a touch up.
