When John built this, LINCOLN BLOCK INC was in its infancy. We had just finished the first assembly machine only weeks before, and we needed a way to show that LINCOLN BLOCK® was extremely versatile from the get-go. Believe it or not, we actually dropped this one off the forklift and the entire thing rolled down the hill but REMAINED INTACT!!! Curiously enough, we hadn’t begun to fill the wall with foam, so the whole thing was held together by the friction of the wood blocks alone, and a few strategically placed screws and nails. IMPRESSIVE!
