Reclaimed lumber from an old Seattle Boeing plant is up for grabs?! Wish I lived closer. Great article about the history of the plant too!
After December 7, 1941 the Lockheed and Boeing aircraft factories along the West Coast were put under netting to try and hide them from Japanese aircraft attack. The Boeing plant went even further with fake houses and trees over the factory.
Aerial view of the Seattle Boeing plant from 2500 feet under camouflage to hide it from bombers. They built fake homes, trees, and roads on top of it. WWII.
In WWII, a fake neighbourhood was built on top of a Seattle Boeing factory. Built almost entirely from plywood and cardboard - with trees made from chicken wire and painted burlap - the town looked convincing enough from the air to hide the factory from any bombers flying by. Factory workers took a series of secret tunnels through fake cafes and shops to get to the factory each morning. This Boeing Plant built nearly 7,000 Flying Fortresses while being camouflaged by this fake neighborhood!

Ja Studio Inc viewed the original highway as a colossal project that distanced the population from nature. But now that the old project is being decommissioned, it provides an opportunity to reengage the surrounding towns with the valleys and other terrain of the area. Their proposal calls for a gentle ramping platform that connects the top of the bridge to the bottom of the valley floor, with houses and shops built on the bridge to create a new city grounded in the old project.
