How much wood would a woodchuck suck if a woodchuck could suck wood?

I'm surprised they haven't wrapped this thing for protection.

Thanks guys, you did not disappoint.

And if that wasn't enough to get the blood flowing... here's a pretty great article about it from minnpost. I found it pretty interesting that they're planning to have the structure completed in just 2 months. Thats so fast.

Just start filling your CEO's inbox with Forbes articles about how millenials love downtowns. Note: If this actually works, it'll probably also become an open-plan hotdesking nightmare. Gotta take the bad with the good, I guess.

Isn't some of that open plan stuff happening in the burbs to try and help stem the flow out of their buildings or try and attract others to come to their buildings.

Unfortunately, I work for a large privately held company that owns all of their properties. No chance...

My thought exactly when I read that also.

I think your secret is going to be impossible to crack.

If you put a lower case l right before ".jpg" with an imgur picture it will automatically give you a more reasonably sized picture.

Interesting, on my mobile device it automatically resizes and gives me a "+" option to blow it up to the large size... which I like because then you can look at more detail, but I'll try next time.

Okay spilling the big secret. I work for Carlson.

Anyway, it will be fascinating seeing this thing once it's a finished product.

So I ran by this today and I can't say as I've ever seen a timber-frame building with such massive manufactured wood members (and no, I'm not making a dick joke). I mean seriously, the floors are ginormous manufactured seemingly SOLID core laminated items. I can't even imagine the weight. Is this normal? I've seen a lot of stick-over-concrete residential construction and it always looks like normal 2x6 studs 16" on center, 2x12 joists maybe 10" on center, stacked up with perhaps some more solid load-bearing columns about. But this isn't like that. I'm not sure how the manufactured lumber for this could possibly be cheaper than concrete, but I guess it is. Anybody able to provide some insight?

Thank you, that's really interesting. So I'm not crazy, this really is a unique thing. They claim it's "the first modern tall wood building to be built in the USA". I'd be interested to know about fire codes: it has some unique advantages over both traditional wood frame buildings and traditional steel frame buildings, but it certainly isn't equivalent to a concrete building so I wonder if there's appropriate code for its specific characteristics.
