French Carpenters Yogan and Menthe’s New Dock/base

This came in a few days ago from Yogan, a carpenter in southwest France, whose treehouse is shown in Tiny Homes (pp 154-55).

“Lloyd, i see sometime your blog and i see that you make a new book “wheels and water.” With my collaborator carpintero (his name is Menthé) we made a new shelter, the principle is a base from 15m² so you can connect 2 trucks (my mercedes and the volkwagen of menthé).

If you come in france you’re welcome

He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated.
