HI all

Before we even knew what permaculture was, we built a barn on the plains of Colorado. We had no building skills....so this was quite a feat. It was 36 feet x 32 feet...so a considerable structure to undertake. Throughout the whole process we took a load of photos...and now have posted the photo diary and some notes of how we built the places here:


Now we live in Maine and have a very small old rundown barn/shed which we have been fixing up for our storage and animals...and using a lot of the skills that we learned while builidng the yellow barn on the tornado swept plains.

I hope that others can get some ideas and inspiration (maybe) from what we built.
