John Muir's Hangnest

i recently fabricated a life size replica of John Muir's "hangnest", a small shack that was built off the back side of a sawmill in what is now Yosemite National Forest, for the Oakland Museum. this was a really fun build, staying true to traditional building techniques but still making the structure itemized and movable. i used mostly reclaimed lumber but still had to scenic some rough sawn douglas fir to look weathered. i'm really pleased with the way this turned out.
