Richard Nelson and I have planned for this project for a month or so. Please check this YoutTube channel playlist above for all the info.

To build this project, I have travelled from Kelowna BC to Calgary AB. The digging has been scheduled for this coming weekend - September 10 and 11. If you happen to live around this area, please come and have fun digging the top soil.

I have also set up a GoFundMe link for this project: GoFundMe for this PyraTUNNEL project

Have fun building this new type of greenhouse to raise fish and grow vegetables in winter!

I had rash all over my body on the Calgary site. So I had to switch site. Now I have moved to a site north of Edmonton, which is colder than Calgary. This Dixon Model combines everything in one design to face the hush challenges we have on the building site: no power, no water, no shelter, only an empty farmland with hay uncut.



This new building site is located in Redwater, AB, Canada, which belongs to the Sturgeon County in the province of Alberta. This drone video shows the building site in more detail - it also shows two large solar panels to charge a 3 kWh power unit and a RV trailer (with the fridge turned off, I have enough power to use, even during cloudy days):

While I have left Redwater Alberta and leave for Angus the owner to finish the foundation for continued work next spring, the Montreal team is working on a similar design with almost no digging (only two small pits to bury the soap reservior and the barrel to collect water condensate). Now they have erected the truss and finish certain parts of the four A-frames - take a look:
