Oh, and by the way, you might want to get rid of those b*kes before the property value goes down... ;)

I don't use any living trees for support ever, that's one of my main goals. Typically when you see something supported by live trees it is because the builder wanted to get it done quick so they could get to riding..........which usually translates to being unsturdy/built poorly. Plus although I am far from being a treehugger I still don't want to damage the trees on my land.

I'm not sure how much bread I've spent on lumber? For the most part the only lumber I really buy is landscape timbers which I use for support legs because they're strong and will not rot in the ground(all our supports are at least 18" in the ground). I don't really like to think about it but I guess I've probably spent around a $1000 between buying timbers and square drive screws.......I don't use nails. The rest of the lumber we pick up here and there.........dumpster diving, begging, etc. One really good connection I have is a dude who works for a company that lays cable. He gets me all the spools I want, plus he breaks them down for me in his spare time and saves the slats at his house so I can come over and get them when he has a nice collection. Spool slats rock for decking runners b/c they're a great width (about 20 inches) and they're curved on top so water rolls off of them. The picture of the roller is decked in spool slats.

NS is HARD on a uni... most of my stuff has a steep uphill on the ladders and youy have to have a lot of momentum to get up it.

I'll try using the spool slats. I have been using some pallet boards, but they arte a pain to rip off, cut then get the old nails out. Since I am building higher and higher, I need to start building more "proper"

bruce, youre house serously creeps me out. My grandparents had a house EXACTLY like it. same brick basement deal with 2 windows, same windows on an overhang above that, same door placement, same picture window on the front by the sidewalk to the door, same size, same lawn, and same color EXACTLY. Yours is missing the garage though, but the driveway is in the exact same place. it's creepy. really creepy, because they sold it recently.

No adults here have felt to need to mention to Tyler that an 11 year old SHOULD NOT be posting pictures of himself and his house all over the internet? Especially a rather niave 11 year old?

Guys, this kid is going to get himself abducted. His parents (if they even know about it) SHOULD NOT be letting him do this. Who knows what creep is might be lurking an innocent little forum like this?

If your 18, hell, even 16, go for it, but not at 11.

First off, there has to be 1,000's of houses that looks like his, so I don't think it is that likely anyone will be able to track him down via a picture. Now if he posted his address and phone number were going to jump in. If a predator is looking for a target, there are a whole lot easier ways to find one than a picture of a house on the internet.

Yea, but how many houses in port orchard, washington? Zooming in on the pictures I can make out 2 of the numbers of his address. Searching whitepages.com I see there are 10 cox's in his town. I can easily cross reference the numbers I can make out and the addresses on the website and find his home address. If that didn't work I could drive to the 10 houses and find it that way. If that doesn't work I could search Lawyers with the name "Cox" in his home town. (he said somewhere else his parents are lawyers)

IT'S EASY!

5 minutes and I know where this kid lives. We already know his parents have money (birthday threads, pictures of his house, lawyer parents, etc) which makes him a target. A DAMN EASY TARGET since anyone with a passing skill at the internet could do what I did. An abducter could probably do a much better job.

Bottom line, it's dangerous and he shouldn't be putting his name, home town, pictures of himself and his house on the internet. That's internet safety for an 11 year old 101.

Well aren't we the little internet investigator. There are a lot of ifs, and I just don't think that is how sicophants work. They are opportunists, and that seems to be quite a stretch.

The biggest problem with child abductions is child molesters, so how much money his family makes is irrelavant. As for kidnapping? I am sure there are bigger fish to fry. I don't think sculking around the internet would be nearly as easy as going to local bus stop or mall. Besides the fact that the person searching would have to have a geographical proximity to the intended target. How likely is it that someone in IA, or GA is going to drive all the way to OR to find someone. Or how likely is it that a predator in his home town, would stumble accross this site? Odds are he is at greater risk driving to and from school. Besides the fact that most internet preditors try to establish a relationship online with the target prior to meeting/abducting.

Should he be careful about what info he puts on the internet, sure, but has he done anything that would make him a target? I don't think so.

I've got to respectfully disagree most of what you just said. :) I'd disagree that they are opportunists, I would say they plan what they are going to do. Also, he is "near portland" which is way more dangerous than say, the middle of Iowa.

Tyler would also be a good target because he's extremely naive and apparently not parentally supervised. You think it'd be hard to talk that kid into the back of your car, or talk him into meeting you off-line? Not at all, especially if I were pretending to be his age. The posting of all his personal information only makes it easier. Heck, one could even argue that makes him a target because it shows how naive he is and how easy he would be. Lots of people resent people with money as well, so that would just sweeten the bait.

I would just say it wouldn't HURT him to not post his home town WITH his real name, and not post pictures of his house. That wouldn't really hinder his existence on this board, and it would make him much safer. If he were to exercise a little discretion it wouldn't harm anything. Right now he is acting like a poster child for internet molestation. I doubt his parents would approve. Would you let your kid post stuff like this on an Internet message board?

Untill you realise that we live on a hill side and the back of the house drops down the hill. So at the front we have 1 floor and at the back 2.5.

The green house hides the door to the cellar, the living room is at the top opening out onto the terrace behind the white wall. There ARE a lot of steps tho.

We started building in the mid 90s and we just finished all major projects last year. These shots were taken a few weeks ago after a big storm.
