This isn't a natural building technique but it should be pretty efficient when we get done. I am trying to keep a blog on it if any one is interested.

I don't have any construction background either, but I have had a lot of help from TF systems. Without that I don't think I would have made it this far.

We just about have the house closed in before any really bad weather hits. The windows should be in next week some time and the roof will go on about the same time.

 
The moth suit and wings road is much more exciting than taxes. Or this tiny ad:
