Realizing that perhaps this spindle devise , designed and built to make the manufacturing process easier, doesn't
Perhaps clearing and leveling an area to roll the structure may have been more efficacious  and safer.

Just Another Shroom in the Wall

Alan from Shibumi Farm stopped by yesterday and dropped off some Oyster Mushroom grain culture. We used it to inoculate some straw and stuffed it into the walls of of Pupa Pod. Now we are going to grow Mycelium, the root part of the mushroom, inside the walls of the pod. When it's done growing, we'll dry it out, and hopefully have a good insulation material. While we were working, alan dropped some interesting facts on us.. you can feed Oyster mushrooms pure motor oil, or any other organic substance, and it will thrive, making it a great tool for cleaning up waste. It can survive in a highly acidic environment, with a PH as high as 12, where almost nothing else can survive, which will allow us to have a very pure insulation material. Yeah, mushrooms are pretty amazing. I hope they pair well with pallets.
