Ha ha ha! That greenhouse is the exact opposite of the greenhouse we are slapping together. We just used a Costco barn frame. Seeing that beautiful bomber structure makes me laugh at how jethro ours is. I'll have to post pics.

OTH, I don't want to know what that thing cost!
WTF

It's not as expensive as you think but it's still not cheap.

It is for a private school. The kids use it for their cottage industry work and science. They grow the veggies they use in their hot lunches. They sell them to themselves and pay for the things they want. For example their annual trip to Yosemite is paid for by the hot lunches these kids sell to the rest of the school.

In the first picture you can see a small hoop house and a shed with windows. The hoop house is producing winter greens now and the shed is a hydroponic lettuce house. It's amazing what these kids produce. All summer a group of kids work the gardens and the planter boxes to make sure in the fall they have goods for lunches.

This program is overseen by a lady who runs a huge greenhouse lab at the university. Were talking 10 house of 20x100. She volunteers to help the kids and to teach science at the same time.

Enjoy your greenhouse no matter how big or small it's important for one to be part of growing their food IMO it's in your genetic make up.

Build out #2

The box on the left is storage for the aux batteries/converter and other swag. Got a nice RV access door with lock throw in too. Fold down mini table going in on the left toward the rear of the box tonight.

Bed is a single, and a plank will slide over to accommodate the lady, 2 part custom cushion.

Fold up seat in the back left to be added soon, and a H2o system with pump on the way.

Trying to get serious at the bivy

Saw this in our boatyard in NZ recently. Tuna tower to the moon, under construction and take a gander at the temporary tie-down. Ouch!

What, nobody appreciates a timberframe?

It's the most elegant, precise form of building, IMO.

I'm not looking for compliments, as I didn't cut the frame, but it's really great to see someone's work come together quickly. The frame was cut seven years ago, and just now was assembled.

The precision on the mortises and tenons is beautiful.

When a board is tuned with a plane rather than a sander speaks volumes for ones dedication and craft. My friend is an incredibly talented timberframer. He couldn't build a stick framed wall to save his life, but he does what he knows to the nth degree.

Don't be trollin' bra, you knows we does! Lookin' gud for a bunch o' hippies!
What's that white stuff everywhere?

Are you saying yer friend handplaned those? Get him some help,
mental or powerwise. One word - Mafell, an old associate of Freud.

No power planers allowed.

He can plane as efficiently as I can run a sander.

Timberframes are so damn elegant.

I'm just trying to show off my friends work, because it's amazing.

Edit; Reilly, my friend works in the traditional Japanese style, for what it's worth.

Seems like you are back with a much better crew - love the timber frames.

You know that quality matters when this is your base.

Cheers, Brandon.

Very nice frame, Brandon. But where's the sapling nailed to the peak?

thanks for another sweet contribution Brandon-!

i'm consistently surprised at how "few" total posts this thread has had compared to how many i assume there must have been, prior to actually checking.

i regularly assume there must have been more total posts then there actually has been, due to the incredible number of high quality posts this thread receives.

if there is a long running thread with a higher quality to quantity ratio i don't know what it is...

so a big thanks to all of the contributors... [and especially to survival for getting the ball rolling almost four years ago]

Brandon, it is always a fun day when you have a crane onsite.

Looks a bit nippy though..

That is good , it keeps the OSHA guys in their office. :)

Looks like a great crew.

When men were men, and they could stand on a 6x12 beam 10 feet off the ground without ropes or nets.

Hell yeah, Wilbeer! Any more photos?

And, let's get into the mountains again this spring!

Edit; No worries on the work thing bro. We just need to get back after it climbing or hiking. You're a great partner.
