Exits and Entrances

Here's the last stage of our poo farm - the sub soil transpiration drippper pipe thingies. Try saying that quickly after a few drinks...

field B

field A

pulling pipes

and then hiding it all away

dosing syphon to alternate waste to each field

Now we got all of the backend stuff out of the way, it's time for the grand entrance to start materialising.

Old mates Biggsy carving poles while Marcus carves wires

aint never madea proper mortice and tenon joint before

kinda fun though

there's some nutso grain in these iron bark twigs (about 80kg each!!)


Of course a standard door would not do. No, we gotta go make our own out of what scraps we have left over. Mmmm, reckon we should use those old springs as hinges????

More when I next find time...


  1. Yeh, plenty of progress but not much time to post pix. We are getting close to finished in the real world and it's very exciting. I'll try to get some more posted soon.

  2. Hi , just had a look at your blog after you emailed us via Straw Mansion. Wow epic battle over so many years guys well done! Yes Iron bark is SO bloody tuff, deserves its name! LOVE those springs as hinges too!

    1. Epic is an understatement there. We are very nearly done but so, so tired, sore and cranky. When we get human again, I'll get some more pics up for everyone. Be warned - it is looking bloody fabulous...:)
