This is the Construction Zone for the front-porch (root-section) level of the Orcmid's Lair site.
Every folder in this site is bolted into the
construction structure. The construction structure provides
the scaffolding on which the site is erected; it is always enterable via the
that every folder possesses, no matter what other default pages are present.
index.htm page provides an anchor point
for any other scaffolding in the section. The index page also serves
as the default page of the section during early construction and sometime
for a long time after that.
The construction structure is never removed. It
becomes covered over by the placement of content and any facade page (e.g.,
default.htm) that provides a friendlier, production entry
to the folder, but the structure remains as foundation.
The construction structure of the site is also a way to
situate and anchor all of the content. The top-right corner of
every ordinary page is the anchor block. When present, the
anchor block provides the folder hierarchy that the page is situated under.
It is a way to navigate to the containing section and its superiors.
The construction structure and the content structure are congruent in this
regard–they share the same folder hierarchy. If there is no anchor
block for a particular style of page, there is usually an alternative near
the top of the page.
Access to the construction structure is always available.
The "Hard Hat" image in the lower-left corner of all non-index pages
provides a link to the construction structure under which the current
page is situated. These links are to the
index.htm page in the same folder.
(Some of these images provide links to the document-engineering materials
that are specific to an individual page, rather than for the entire folder.
The title of the image indicates which case applies.)
The construction structure locates applicable
construction zones. The "Hard Hat" image in an
index.htm page is used to link to the nearest construction zone.
This will be in the same or a superior section. Each construction zone
provides a local job jar of "work orders" and construction items.
There may be additional materials that are specific to the construction of
the given section and its subordinate folders.
Chaining of construction zones. A construction
zone page, such as this one, always provides a table for reaching the
construction zones in its vicinity: the construction zone that is
immediately superior to this one and those other construction zones for
which the present one is the immediate superior. Every table also
provides a link to the Construction Materials section and any other
This construction zone applies to the construction of all pages in the "root" or front-porch of Orcmid's Lair. This construction zone is reachable from all construction zones in subordinate folders. There are no superior construction zones.

This facilitates mirroring of the Orcmid's Lair group (including The Miser Project) on a variety of media and also allows a single "source" of Orcmid's Lair to be taken wherever the Lair is hosted.
