Great idea Andy,

 BN was always my first choice for a US road, and as I'll be in the Pacific Northwest I'll have an excuse to buy some of those cascade green lovelies

Can't wait to see things develop

If you are moving to Salmon Arm that is north of the border which makes Washington state the Pacific southwest. Remember that. How is your move going by the way?

True enough Webbo!

 The move is .. well evolving..  We still have to sell our house here (thanks brexit and teresa may :(  )
so we've lost the house in Salmon Arm.. which sucks.. but it has led us to consider new and different things.   not to hijack the thread, but it looks like were now going to be buying land on Vancouver Island and building a log home .. its a terrifying prospect but exciting too.. and yes it will have a basement!

Wow Graham, exciting times!

Still haven't ruled out moving to WA ourselves, but it is more likely we stay in England now for financial reasons.

It looks like fun but I'm glad that It wasn't me doing it!!
Look at the arms. What a mess.   :D
I wonder if cutting with the rotary tool has certain texture when you finish it.

The mess would have been a lot worse if using a rotary tool on the expanded polystyrene which I used. The EP breaks up into little balls that fly everywhere just like a blizzard and worst of all, they stick to things and are difficult to clean up. So, hot wire on EP - yes; rotary tool on EP - not unless you are truly desperate.

Graham, building a log cabin on Vancouver Island is pretty exciting all right. VI is a nice place - I lived in Victoria for 6 years. Are you planning to live in the back woods?

I hope you have a shop vac to clean up that mess!!! I've only been brave enough to use a rasp on the pink stuff.

My wife grew up in Victoria and North Van so we know the area pretty well, but we're not going full on back-country, just something out of town a few minutes.  We're looking around Shawnigan Lake , Qualicum and Nanaimo at the moment, so small town/village or just out of town although we are looking a getting at least a couple of acres.  Its just a pity it doesnt look like the E&N will resume operation (well SVI now).  I do hope it gets sorted out else its a ferry ride to the mainland to railfan

Looking at that guy with his pink foam makes me think that the small amount of mess I make with the foam cutter has made it a brilliant investment!  I've also fallen foul of the white expanded polystyrene in the past.  The little bits stick to everything, with a strangely warm feeling to them as well....
