    Home made summer house that spins 360 degrees

    Here's a summerhouse made by my dad that spins around using electric motor. It does a full spin in around 3 minutes. I wouldn't say that we use the spin function too often, but still it's a cool thing in our yard. Definitely a great place to have dinner.

    Neat little enclosure.

    Many years ago I helped a guy build a very similar structure. His was used for a Christmas scene that rotated. I don't recall the rpms, but it was slow..maybe like yours.
    One thing I insisted on was a safety clutch for the drive, especially considering that youngster would be gawking at the scene inside with their noses against the glass panes.
    The Torque Limiter was set so that a person could grab the perimeter and easily stop it from rotating.
