Step 2: Scavenge Lumber

Picture of Scavenge Lumber
My lumber came from a discarded futon couch frame like this.
I ripped it lengthwise for the lattice sticks and rafters. I used a thin blade on my little tablesaw to not waste wood.

I was totally thrilled to think I could build a house from a couch. And the house would be plenty big enough to put the same kind of couch inside.
