Here in Missouri they call this type of building a pole barn. We put this up shortly after we had the fence moved. We hired a crew to do it for us. Lucky buildings could put it up in two days where it would take us a month to do it ourselves. This is a 30 feet wide x 40 feet long x 12 feet high. Has 11 x 10 foot doors on both ends of the building. If we have too we can move our camper inside for the winter and have it warmer for us. At the moment we are in the middle of organizing our stuff. Everything we came to Missouri with is in this barn. The cooler is our drop box. This is for when we are gone. The blue tarp has inside it rusty colored clay and rock. When we dug out the hole for the septic about 5 feet down is this clay. I am screening the rocks out of this clay so I can use it in the plaster for the final coat in the EarthShip.
Please feel free to post comments or questions. This is one way we have of communicating.
