Hello, my husband and I are making plans to build our Oehler house this year. After reading Mike's books and watching the DVD's over and over for two years, we are super excited!

One thing there isn't much info on is size. So we are reaching out to you with experience. We are thinking around 18 x 24 would be nice since it's just the two of us. We would also like to build on a small root cellar accessible from inside (with a pantry in between as an insulating buffer).

What size is the uphill patio? Larger than the house size, correct? Is it shored also? This isn't exactly clear in the info from Mike. Nor are the dimensions of the Royer Foyer.

And what do you recommend as plant material on the finished roof? We live in the mountains of northeast Washington State.

Anything else you have to offer would be greatly appreciated!
