I am designing (mostly in my head) an Oehler home with clestories and uphill Patio, multiple levels and all. I have land given to me by my grandmother who would love to see an eco house of any kind be built . The land is a hill with a leveled off "step" on the south side about half way up which g-ma had built hoping one day for her house to go there. the soil is a red dirt with higher than average clay content but not so much that it is slick. I came across a few problems while reading his book some of which is answered on these forum pages. one problem was the clestrories which I really liked but in order for water to drain downhill it would meet one of the drip boards. I think I found a solution which is showed in my crappy drawings hopefully under this message.  Any way look at my pictures and tell me what you think. And yes I draw like a Kindergartner.

I can see it fine but I know nothing about how this website works.An administrator may be able to help you .Its not really worth looking at any way. Unless you have an imagination and appreciate fingerpaints.

I can help people improve their house designs.  You'll have to get in touch with me directly through my website though.

Cheers,
