The 9th 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 9th ToO Official Birthday Present Construction Thread

Postby DanP740 » Mon Mar 10, 2014 5:09 pm

And now the moment you've all been waiting for! It may be one of my latest starts, but it's time to start building this year's ToO birthday present!

For an example of what these are like for those that haven't seen these before, here's last year's construction thread.

Without further adieu, I present...the foundation!

Stay tuned in a few days when I post an update.

I totally forgot about this.... A cake maybe?

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.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.

And it is time for an update!

Whatever your guesses as to what it will be, they may have just been shattered.

And time for another update.

We've got the walls all framed and are finishing framing the roof! It's obvious it's not a cake now (or so you think), so what do you think this building is for?

Heh, completely forgot about this. Always a fun thread.

And I predict that there will be a cake worked in there somewhere.

Construction is moving along very well!

Almost the entire building has been sheathed in plywood.

It's the brand new ToO conference centre, the place for all the visiting dignitaries (a.k.a. old folks) to stay while they visit to celebrate the anniversary! \:D/

I got the idea by combining my idea of a hotel with TKD's idea of a ski lodge. Brilliant, I know. ;)

You Canadians can teach us to ski, yes? Although, I'd feel bad for anyone trying to teach me. :(
