Really more of an art form

It is surprising how non-scientific and exact the act of building a house is. There is a lot of guesswork and “thinking on your feet” that I really would not expect. I mean people have been carpenters for at least something like 5000 years – couldn’t they have it down by now?
Another thing that is much more art than science is putting up a boulder retaining wall. i am just hoping that there is enough art to look nice but just enough science to keep the wall in a more or less vertical orientation. Photos to be posted when I find my digital camera.


One response to this post.

  1. “thinking on your feet” in the contruction business is known as “field engineering”. In case you ever wanna throw around some lingo.
