The Scrap House

A rather unfortunate misunderstanding. | August 29, 2010

Last night, Ed made the following post. Whether his name is actually Ed or if he was simply making an Editor joke, we will likely never know.

“Sorry, don’t know if “Waynes Coating” is a little joke or just your interpretation of having heard the word spoken but not seen it written”

However, I believe he was in fact referring to Wainscoting. Which is a completely separate matter. I should have made myself more clear to have avoided such a grave miscommunication.

You see, I actually had the intention of making wall panelings out of the rather fetching leather garment, as seen below.

I should have been more clear, and I apologize for my negligence.

Also; Wayne Brady makes Elmo look like Malcom X.

  1. I started reading this blog because of my small house interest, and the link on Tiny House Blog, but I gotta tell ya kid, you crack me up. 🙂

    • Thanks… I try, and for the most part, fail… nice to here someone else shares my sense of humour. Half the problem is when I’m writing I write certain parts in different voices and inflections, which in text doesn’t do much good! Anyway, thanks for the kind words. I have another update lined up that I’ll try to get posted soon. Todays actually my first day of college so I’ve just not had the time to sit down and type up the post. After that it might be a while but I’m going to try to get up to the house some weekends to work on it; it’s actually pretty close to being done, but al the detail work is tedious.

      Thanks for reading the blog, and have a great day! -Ted

  2. Yes, my name’s Ed and I too smile at your slightly sideways humour.

About author

This blog is dedicated to an experiment a group of three other fellow students and I are doing at our school in Buxton, NC. My Drafting III class and I set out to see if we could build a house for free. It's small, but functional. All the materials come out of dumpsters. And most of all, it's working.
