Woodworkers Tale – The Hemloft

[photo via: flickr // runthesundown]

My buddy, John, turned me onto to this great website and 10-part story about Joel Allen, once a software designer and failed 26-year old retiree who devoted himself to carpentry, for the hell of it, essentially. The dude’s story is pretty phenomenal. He landed some big home construction jobs with a portfolio consisting of a storage shed he built in a week on his parents property. After work every night, he pursued a vision of building a damn spectacular hidden tree house in the woods outside of Whistler. No permits, no land acquisition, no shop. Just dedication, skill and some eccentric characters along the way. I’ll let Joel tell the story.
