Summer in Ibiza and no time to party!

The mission is to build 12 wooden platforms in a month for an eco campsite for an artists residency that begins in September. Bell tents will go up on the platforms. It is incredibly hot, of course it is summer and it is the Mediterranean. All the holidaymakers are here packing out the beaches and the bars…we can sometimes hear the music from one of the superclubs nearby. But we are busy building 12 of these platforms in a beautiful pine woodland that belongs to a local artist. The idea is to make each one modular: although the total size will be 4m x 5m the platform will consist of 5 separate parts that can be attached to each other. This means it is possible to take it down and put it together with all the other platforms to make a giant dancefloor of 2,880m2. A multifunctional wooden platform of this size needs a lot of wood and three little lorry loads have just been piled up next to our outdoor workshop space that we set up under the cool shady carob tree. Here below is the wood ready for one platform.
