Why not use regular ol wood joining? I saw a bit of it with the first wofati. Why not use wood joining methods to do away with the costly metal pins.
Sorry if i missed the reason already this wasnt in use yet.
I am sure if no one there knows how to that someone could be found to come help and teach people.

We had some cold weather come through. It made drilling holes in logs extra tough.

For a while I thought the ground would warm up again, enough that we might still squeeze this in this year, but yesterday I made the call to bottle the project up and wait until march/april to finish.



Here are folks building fires so that the ground can be heated enough to dig through.




Here is Mike chipping through the cold, cold ground:
