Generator Box

Therapist and I built, or over built, the coolest Generator enclosure you’ve ever seen.  Or, well, that I’ve ever seen.  And I haven’t really seen many…  The build goals were:  light weight, cheap, quiet, self ventilating,  and packable – as in, breaks down flat.  Success!  It only took us about 40 hours, which isn’t bad considering we carved the whole thing by hand out of a single piece of wood…  Unfortunately these pics don’t do it justice…

Burlap construction complete!

Between last Tuesday and today, we did the following:

  • Completed Green Tower A
  • Seamed the rest of the green burlap
  • Completed Green Tower B
  • Created green skirts for the tunnel sections (x 2)
  • Created the silhouette farm scene for the top of the structure out of green felt and fish net
  • Re-glued all the edges of burlap with proper glue for more strength

Still to do:

  • Re-glue edges of Facade side B
  • Build a generator box
  • Create signage
  • Paint “Mant Farm” along skirts for bottom of structure
  • etc…
