Mystery Photo – Hexagon

Hexagon on Snow

Hmm… What magic am I up to now, building hexagons on the snow… The wagon and large dog will give you a sense of scale. Leave guesses in the comments… The answer will appear in a post next week.

By the way, if you don’t want the EPA gaining Title V regulatory control over your home, wood stove, livestock, gardens, fields, apartment, etc please go read about the EPA power grab.

    a corn crib?

    Foundation for a Yurt?

    Clearly this is pendant you’re making for the hrímþursar (frost giants from Norse mythology). My guess is that you’ll attach a logging chain so the giants can wear it around their neck.

    My second guess is it’s one segment of a geodesic dome.

    …loved the video!

    My guess is a greenhouse.

  6. EJ says:

    A gazebo for peaceful, family moments of gazing at piggies

    A piggie gym – but after seeing all that running around yesterday them might not need it…

    A multi-faceted, viewing room so high falutin’ visitors can see pigs without getting too close and muddy

    What I want to know is where you were when you took that photo!? Have you been climbing around on the roof again? : )

    I know! I know! The base of a tower! A folly as they are called! Walters’ folly. But I would think you would build it higher up the mountain? Right? I have read about these kinds of tower in Ireland.

    Isn’t that your herb garden?

  11. I love all these creative ideas and will have to add some to my project list. I’ll have to check with the hrĂ­mĂžursar if this is its size. A gazebo and a tower are both things coming someday… The hexagon as a herb garden sounds fun.

    Keep those ideas coming because it is something completely different.

    Something to do with magic? But arent those pentagons? hu.. Maybe it’s a giant beehive start. Janet

    Could it be a Doggie Condo ?

  14. I’m voting for a sun house where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful views, but knowing how practical you are I think you’ll probably grow some tender herbs and plants in there too.

    Hmmm, you all like close living quarters… maybe it’s the foundation for your family’s summer sleeping room? I’m picturing screened walls, conical roof… I would have guessed some other things like gazebo for hot tub… My dream at least! Very, very first impression was a fancy sandbox for playtime!

    Is it the layout for pig stalls inside your new greenhouse….george

    Footing for Hexayurt?

    Whatever it is I will probably want one. You have the coolest toys and projects!

  18. Here’s a neat text reversing mirror if you don’t have one handy:

  19. Okay, here’s the answer….

    Now don’t look if you haven’t made a guess yet!

    First leave a comment with your guess, then look at the answer below.

    Read it backwards…

    A hand mirror held up to the screen may help. :)

    I had forgotten how easy it is for me to read backwards. No mirror needed. I stumbled over a misused word though, but not for long. When I was a teen, a small group of us called each other by our names spelled backwards. Egroeg, Yram Nelle, and her brother Mit were three of my best friends.

    Not quite such a useful application of creativity as your pour planning!

  21. And the answer is… (Don't look if you haven't guessed yet…) forms for pouring concrete tiles to place around the water and whey troughs to keep down the mud. After we do a pour of foundation work there is generally some concrete left over so these tile forms let us put that 'waste' to good use.
