Dick Proenneke what a badass! I could watch that documentary over and over.
This is really greatly inspiring to see as it progresses. Looking to buy 5-20 acres in the next couple years and get a rough cabin on site to start working on a permanent home. Sort of the grub steak concept but leaning more toward a get away cabin than a permanent living structure.
There appears to be quite a bit of jointing going on, how solid is this thing? Say if someone were to goof and back the track hoe into it, would it budge?
Kevin, since speed is currently of utmost importance large 8" timberlock screws are being used as fasteners. They are however expensive in quanity. In future construction the hope is to find alternative solutions that trade time skill and ingenuity for expense.
My name is matt beckman, and I have been running the wofati project. The structure is very solid. I put the excavator bucket on the Perlines to give it a nudge. And the structure stood strong. this structure as long at the umbrella is done right will last for many years.
