The 8th ToO Official Birthday Present Construction Thread

If there's something on your mind that just doesn't seem to fall into any of the other categories, well, it quite likely belongs inside Joe Finneman's marketplace. Think of it as a general store for general discussions!

The 8th ToO Official Birthday Present Construction Thread

Postby DanP740 » Sun Mar 10, 2013 11:51 am

Yes, folks, it's that time of year again! The ToO is going to be turning 8 years old in less than a month. :shock: And so, as always, I am here with my smiley construction crew, to build a present for the good people of the Town of Odyssey. It could be a giant cake, it could be a factory, it could be a weird apartment building... you never know.

And so, without further adieu, I present the first picture of construction! Not much to see, just the contractor and I talking while workers in excavators dig out the foundation.

Who am I? I'd rather not answer that question, the real question is, "Who are you?". Right now I am trying to think of something witty to put here.. I might not find anything, but that's fine. This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.

Wow, it's already time for another picture. We've got some large footings and giant steel beams going in. Whatever this is, it has some serious structure.

Update time! We're bringing in the tower from a large crane, so whatever that large steel base is is going to be tall.

This is actually starting to look even more like the Eiffel tower. Good eye. The contractor and I are briefing the crew on the next phase of the project, now that the big center column is in place.

Arg, I forgot to post here yesterday, so this picture is a day late. We've got something big happening now! A giant square made out of metal truss is being lowered into position. You can see they needed a very big trailer to bring in the sides on this thing. Any guesses?

The contractor is in the white hardhat, and I'm the one with brown hair and sometime an american flag hardhat.

The footing goes in quite deep, but we weren't able to show the installation on that. We always do plenty of research into the stability of our structures. If anything, the 5 cake was unstable.
