Name that structure
City folk may not recognize this structure-in-progress: it is up by the corner, and is a place to wait for the school bus in the mornings so you are out of the rain and snow and wind. As you can see, it’s not done yet: the sides will go all the way up and it’ll have a door of some kind. Haven’t quite got that all designed yet, but the lumber was free so we thought this was a good way to make use of it.
The floor boards are preserved with linseed oil, that’s why they look different. We will probably seal the whole thing that way when we are done, although the oil sure seems to attract the hornets when it is wet!
