Playhouse Made From Oil Cans
Modern Mechanix. The article reads as follows,
"By soldering together 1500 quart oil cans, Edgar Speer, Ohio mechanic, has constructed a novel playhouse for his small daughter. By laying the soldered cans on their long axis and offsetting each course at the end, Speer has achieved a log cabin effect. Large enough to accommodate three or four full grown men, the cabin is 6 1/2 feet long, 4 1/2 feet wide, and 6 1/2 feet high. The project took about 2 1/2 months of Speer's spare time. The work was done with a common blow torch and soldering iron".
Don't forget to keep safety in mind if you decide to build your own nontraditional play space, and send pictures!
