Treehouse - UP UP and on top of a stump

Hope to lift the treehouse on to the stump roughly 8' off the ground (using machinery) just before or during this meetup. We will need to make a staircase - hopefully hang a door - possibly start the earthen plaster interior. I built a round treehouse - being such left me with not too many options for wall coverings - so I decided on light clay straw slip between studs and a earthen plaster on both the inside and outside.

It is 8 feet in diameter and I need to fill the wall cavities with light clay straw slip. There is no charge for this workshop but donations are appreciated. I need the following:

Glass bottles for letting light in : green, red, yellow, blue, clear, at least 5 of each. skylights - round bubble type or let me know what you have.
Do you have a funkadelic disco ball or some "off the hook" swag for the interior? Also need some dark wood dowels to make plugs to hide the lag bolts in the floor, could also use some dark wood strips for between the floor boards. I will add photos soon of the famed treehouse.

We need to make a killer arched door, finish some of the light clay straw walls, install window sills, finish installing lag bolts in the floor, we have not reached plaster stage but hopefully we will soon, cut bottles and make the little windows then core them into the walls. Ect.

Bring your own work gloves - safety glasses - hat - water bottle - snacks . We will start at 9am and work until we want to stop or to sundown and have a camp fire in the "Fire Pit" or we can go swimming at a near by rock quarry with crystal clear water and catch the sunset and come back for a bonfire. (Lots of options)- we will chat about natural building.

    This is something I want to see. And I did acquire a few wine bottles for the house.
