After a long hard day of work both owner and builder sat together under the stars. A camp fire crackled while they laughed and chatted together under the moon.
“You Don’t get it do you? That there timber behind ya now that tree is all rotted out and we can’t use it to build nothing.Too bad. Actually, it could just fall on ya now but don’t worry it won’t. You got the upper hand on that one. Not long for it though, its leaning.”
Shaking his head the owner looked at the tall tree and shouted, “Timberrr!”
The builder nodded as the owner smiled at his sarcasm.“Now if you want more Timber your going to have to get it yourself!”
“Hey,wait.(chuckling). Well, I actually was already planning to cut that one down behind me and use it for some fire wood.“
Laughing the builder smiled cheerfully, “Good Idea!”
“Consider it done.”
“Oh. Ahh…Okay…so…Business wise. You still want me to build the…cabin for you?”
“Yes, actually but not with simple timber wood. I only want the purest wood, the finest cedar, and the most beautiful acacia woodwork available for the floors.”
The builder gave a side of relief. Excitement filled his heart to finally have a chance to build something so grand and of the best quality. Even though gathering the materials would be challenging the vision that enveloped the builders mind overshadowed the thoughts of difficulties in creating such a luxurious cabin.
Peacefully smiling the owner questioned, “Now, then we have quite the job on our hands.Don’t we?”
“Yes, literally we do.” The builder jovially replied.
