Piza, Italy Would Be Proud!

I don’t know what you would do with some mismatched pieces of boards and 54 bricks that have no flat surfaces on them, but this is what I came up with.  The office is a bit neater now, which is a plus.

Unfortunately, I think I need to put up a sign that says, “Don’t exhale in the direction of the ‘Leaning Bookshelf of Pieces.'”  It is a bit wobbly.  I think I can make a few adjustments with the bricks but I doubt it will help much.

One problem I solved was what to do with an old car battery that seems to have taken up permanent residence on the office floor.  It makes a great weight to balance the tragedy waiting to happen.

Hey, this is Mexico!  I’ve seen construction worse off than this for housing!  Of course, people eventually were injured or killed, but that’s beside the point!

    Maybe you should explore building laterally and not so high. It looks like one earth tremor will send your construction toppling. 🙂


  2. it would be safer, I'm sure, but the floor space is limited. fortunately, we've never felt an earthquake in this part of Mexico before, although anything is possible. at least that spot isn't inhabited by a person very often, so it probably won't hurt anyone should it fall over, unless the car battery explodes (hmm…I hadn't thought of that before) oh well…it's Mexico…nothing like living on the edge!
