Scissor Truss Eggmobile, Part II...and a Short Break

You've probably noticed that my posts have been spread a little thin these days (or maybe that's just my modus operandi?), so I wanted to let you know that while I have several ideas for posts swimming in my head (garden update, plumbing DIY, home and upholstery name a few), I'm going to leave you with a few photos of our Scissor Truss Eggmobile and take a week or two off from blogging.  As you probably know, springtime is a busy time for homesteads, and when you throw in some extra activities we've taken on, life can start to unravel. 

And if you have young children, you'll know that interruptions like breaking off curtain rods or just needing time with Mom can make focusing on writing a little bit difficult.

So please forgive the hiatus, and know that I will be back just as soon as we complete a few projects and get back into a manageable routine!

As usual, feel free to post comments and/or questions!

We have yet to enclose the ends, put up roost bars, hang the nest boxes, and install the bolts so we can actually haul this thing.  We're planning on tackling this Thursday evening.  Think we can get it all done???

A sense of scale.
Well, maybe I'll sneak back on here with some photos of the completed project...


  1. It's looking good! I bet you can get it ready in time, especially with a helper like the guy above. Didn't John Lennon say "life is what happens when you're making other plans"...go hug a kid, fix a curtain rod...I think all of us are kind of overwhelmed right now, anyway.

  2. wow that tractor is looking really good, no wonder its taking so long to build. We have learnt that its better to build it right the first time so you don't spend every other wkend fixing things.... Looking forward to seeing the finished product though! Bet your chickens will love it too!

    1. They've been in there for almost two weeks. No complaints so far. :)
