why yes, i’m slowly making progress on The World’s Most Awesome Treehouse(s) since drilling two foot holes through the trees! the supports are up ( i’ll show more on the design later ) and today i started framing out the 14’x16′ platform for the 2″x10″ floor joists that will be built around two of the trees.
so, once again, i paid a visit to nelson’s agricenter to pick up four 14′ 2″x10″s and a couple 16′ 2″x10″s. only, i didn’t have the car so i had to take odin’s radio flyer wagon. the fine folks at nelson’s are used to this kind of behavior from me, since i only live a couple of blocks away.
as i wheeled the wagon into the lumber barn, the lumber guys didn’t skip a beat.
lumber guy number one: “i see you’re starting another big job, huh.”
lumber guy number two, scratching his head: “well, i dunno, i guess we’ll skip putting a red flag on on it.”
“yeah, probably doesn’t need it. just going down the road.”
so they loaded the boards on the wagon and i wheeled it down the street to much to amusement of several small kids playing in yards along the route.
