Cantilevered Cabin- A tiny shack bolted to the side of a city building.....

      LOVE this one! It was installed by the San Franciscan art group "Manifest Destiny" to bring awareness to urban homelessness.
      The cabin, 10 feet tall, 6 feet long and 7 feet deep. It was mainly built from wood that was recycled from a 100 year old barn. A small solar panel is the power source for its interior illumination at night. Custom steel 'L' brackets, alongside concrete anchor bolts were used to secure this building to the side of another city building, three stories above a restaurant. This building will remain on display until the end of October (although I don't know why they just don't leave it up for the sake or tourism...) -Derek "Deek" Diedricksen also has a good piece on this.....
