i think as you all know, i love and respect jambaloney's intelligence, strength, kindness, generosity - but one thing that i really admire is his ability to take a bunch of junk and somehow build something useful! he learned this from his step-dad Ted.
anyway, it's been a nice couple of days, but today it is pretty windy and cool.
so on to jambaloney's latest "gonzo homesteading" project - his step-dad will be proud!
what do you do with your truck cab that you don't use? and a pallet that you found in the garbage and dragged home?
you reinforce the pallet and start building a shed is what!
he finaggled some contraption to move the truck cab - by HIMSELF! that thing must weigh 300lbs!
then he finaggled a ramp and was able to move the truck cab up the ramp and onto the top of the shed!
i couldn't believe how easily he just moved that baby up there!
and there it is - up on top of the shed!
here is how it looks after more work on it today - he has wrapped the whole thing in plastic and will use braces to hold the plastic down.
that's what he is out doing right now. he will start working on the door soon and hopes he can finish it all by this evening. before the door though, he will remove the 2 X 4's holding the cab on the shed and use the cab clamps to clamp the cab to the shed.
what's it for? good questions, guys and gals, i always appreciate good questions! once the entire shed is built and water-proof - he will build a ramp up to the shed. the shed is where we will store our atv from now on! we learned our lesson the hard way that leaving the atv out in all weather, even though wrapped tightly in a tarp - well - not good! we rely on that atv to do the plowing of our driveway in the winter - that atv is a tool - not a toy! and now it has a permanent home!
i am so proud of that man! so proud!
