I'm searching for ideas how to make my house-constructing safer and productive using what I have.
I don't have either metal scaffolds as are standard, neither access to sawmilled lumber to build from poles and boards. I have a woodlands with lots of pines with branches (almost nothing that's straight), and birches (I don't know how safe birch would be for a temporary construction).
I built a first version for the house, though it's not very useful and I'd warn against someone else to use it because some parts are fragile. I'll post a photo later.
You should have no trouble using poles and branches.
JUST build it as well as you build the house.
Use bolts where you can, cross bracing, handrails and dont fool yourself by telling people to be careful.
A broken ankle takes about 6 months, head injuries can be so bad from short falls, you may not even know about, let alone having to rebuild a shonky structure.
Good idea also, go well.

i have built one no pics. but close to like yours we did 2 A frames for each side. but wasn't a A cause had 4 levels. 4 ft apart levels. each A had boards to help stable like a ^ on the / support. we was around 12 ft high to fix a chimney lol. later used 2 ladders and made those I hooks to hook and sit on ladders. was way easier. had to have a 3rd ladder to get on that tho lol.
