I'm selling my quonset hut type building kit. It's never been assembled and all there to the best of my knowledge. It is the equivalent of two or three pallets but weighs a lot. Buyer would have to haul and you would need a heavy duty trailer. I was going to turn it into a home but due to unforseeable events in my personal life I find it is now time to sell off most of my belongings and go on a journey to find myself. There are some really cool and interesting homes made from these types of buildings. Or you could use it for more common purposes such as hay storage, livestock shelter, machine shed, tractor barn, etc. I know that this isn't the prefered green or sustainable design most of us would want but it is an affordable and quick way to have a home even if you used it as a temp. home while you built your residence. I am asking what I paid which is $10,000 and that is only half of what Steelmasters would charge. Here is a video of the building process just to give you an idea.

Please help a young (25), recently single, desperate permie free himself of debt and free my soul. I'm located in Wayland, Missouri 63472.

By the way I am hoping to join a community or farm later this year to learn hands on the permie organic way and I love sustainable building methods and The Pattern Language is my favorite design book. If you know of anywhere I might fit in or needs an extra hand soon Please let me know.

My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
