Here is the better side of my better half.
HH's new project is a cabin down by the creek, on the
new 10 acres we bought from the LandStealer last
The building material consists of pallet lumber. He gets it
from his job. His company buys big rolls of steel, and
machines and thingies to cut it into little pieces of steel
to make saw blades and thingies that butchers use. Or
something like that. The pallet lumber used to be free,
because it saved the company from paying to have it
hauled off. Now I think the employees have to bid on
it, because boo hoo, somebody was afraid they weren't
getting their fair share of pallet lumber. Anyhoo, we
already have an A-frame cabin by the creek behind
the Mansion, and a tool/work shed between the
Mansion and the barn, and a giant L-shaped work
bench in the barn made from pallet lumber. I'm sure
HH has done it to recycle the wood. He's sooo green.
As you can see, the new Mini-Mansion is air-conditioned.
Watch out for that first step.
The Veteran is in town this weekend. I hope he didn't
plan to spend the night in the Mini-Mansion.
Looks like a few more steel shipments are in order before
this abode is finished. I haven't asked, but it looks like
the Mini-Mansion is built on skids. HH likes to think he
can take his Mini-Mansion with him wherever he goes.
It also looks like he's planning a front porch.
I hope HH has built it far enough away from the creek.
It's spring shower season, you know.
A Mini-Mansion is a terrible thing to waste.
