sounds like you're ready to take the next step shane
do you have a design on paper?
can you share any visual design with the group?
since this is an outbuilding and not a home you can take a few liberties
and make a few more mistakes
as long as they are minor ones all the better
the structure is up to you to build it to or beyond code
where the bales meet the earth and the structure is where design on paper
helps achieve success here
this will also give you your next round of questions if any
as long as your "hat" and "shoes" are done keeping moisture in mind
you can leave the bales unrenderred for many moons before you undertake
regarding insects, this might change the above sentence, sounds like there
was a book mentioned that could help you
building food and shelter security in the Kettle River watershed
"Activism is the rent i pay for living on this planet" AWalker
'Be the change that you want to see' ghandi
breath is bridge between mind body spirit
insert silence into the daily run of mind
meditate on words of loving kindness
existence precedes essence
you are not your thoughts
you are all relations
