help me build the treehouse spiral staircase!

help me build the treehouse spiral staircase!

update: putting more thought into it and i think going with something closer to this design might be the way to go.


now that the more supportive supports are in place, the next project is to make safe staircase. a ladder is just asking for trouble, especially when you ascending and descending at night in the dark while watching movies.

i think a spiral staircase would look great and not take up as much space a regular stairscase. i’m going to try and follow a modified version of this plan build mostly from wood and not metal (except for a few important parts ).

and you can help me build it! i need a metal plate that fits curve of 4″ pole with 1″ hole in center and 5/8″ ( maybe 3/8″ ) holes at corners. i could custom fab them but that would get spendy with number of them that i need.

surely such a thing must be available at specialty plumbing/electrical shops?

Open-plan offices were devised by Satan in the deepest caverns of hell

the harvard business review blog covers research from the university of sydney that finds that, “…enclosed private offices clearly outperformed open-plan layouts…” the guardian has better headline writers with their coverage of the study, “Open-plan offices were devised by Satan in the deepest caverns of hell”. the findings support previous research which found, “…collaboration-friendly environment with minimal cubicle separations “proved ineffective if the ability to focus was not also considered,” according to a new study by the design firm Gensler. “When focus is compromised in pursuit of collaboration, neither works well.”” if only robert probst inventor of the cubicle could see the current open office designs. he died regretting his contribution to what he considered a “monolithic insanity.”
