Recycled Cabin

The goal of this project was that Mitchell wanted to make a cabin for himself using recycled materials.
So this was the start of the pile of pallets that were donated from the brew-master Andrew at Hockley Valley Brewery

We made up a base to get it all off the ground.
It is level even if Leah says you don't need a level to build with.

Laying down the floor skids.

The plywood that went down on top of the skids.
My Das Auto.  I think it really means truck because I have hauled more stuff with my cars than I ever did with my truck.

New toy.  Gas powered air gun.

Nail gun 1  Square 0

Walls almost done.

Free windows found in the trash.

We will use it to make the bridge out to the island by Mitchell's cabin

Had to build a tool box for the 4X4 for the chain saw, chains etc.

You know you are in trouble when the wheels are off the ground

Do we really need 2 of them?????

That was heavy   Thank goodness for a come alongs and pulleys

Just have to find some more free 2x6's or another free skid like the 1st one
