Well if you have the plans then you have what I have which is fairly clear in the plans.  Good Luck putting one together.

well it is unclear to me whether i have what you call "plans".  when i get a , perhaps we can see if i am missing something.  i have the manuscript that bears the title of this item and have read about half of it rapidly and do not see anything that could be called "plans" there yet.

Yeah, I got the plans & E I think has G's mock up, but may have sent it to the dump instead including my request to have it shipped.


well i think i have it here now ... i went up there for mother's day and brought back some of lote's carvings and some of gregory's notes and what looks like two different manuscripts and some sides of the shelter.  i'm trying to picture how it fits together with the rhomboidal dodecahedron.  let me know if you have any insight in that regard.  i may well scan it and put it in the cloud. max was interested in it too.

Watch out for apiary laws in your state.

yeah i guess .  but if i can convince myself i am doing it right, then i will probably do it  anyway.   I suppose the only reason for these alleged laws are to pander to the bourgeoisie fear of a bee sting.  I have no fear of confronting such a fear directly ... even be it from my neighbors.  Gregory had some comments about that and Elaine shed some light on it too ... so i suppose all of those consequences will happen. 
Well one of the ones I had heard the last time I focused on this was that some laws call for removable hives like the standard edition & this one is not that kind.
But who knows?
