I've been interested in permaculture for a while-- just found the stuff on the internet and started buying books and trying stuff out around the property, even went wwoofing for a bit . Anyways, I've been reading all the stuff on the forums here about WOTFATI and ATI so I went and read an article by John Hait (http://www.norishouse.com/PAHS/UmbrellaHouse.html) and in it he mentions that a second generation umbrella house was constructed in Missoula Montana by a guy named Tom Beaudette. I havent got my hands on his book yet, so maybe there is more on it in there but I know a lot of you guys, most notably Mr. Wheaton himself live up that ways and i was just wondering if anyone had been out to see it and if so if they had any pictures or videos that they could direct me too. It looks pretty amazing in the picture he had in the article but I couldn't find much else outside of what is mentioned in the article and I am VERY interested to see what it looks like and how it works if at all possible.
Thanks a lot for reading. Peace be with you.

I asked the guy if me and Paul could come look at it, and that we'd trade him pie and farm fresh eggs for a tour, but he said his wife doesn't want strangers coming in the house. Apparently they've got a lot of requests over the years.
