I’m starting this as a little diary of ideas and what I build for some shelter I need for the winter. I need to build a new goat shed for my bucks, fix the does pen in the barn and add a milk stand or room or something to milk in for the winter. I have to repurpose a small barn into a chicken coop and we need more nesting boxes. The turkeys need some pens or they’ll stay up in the trees when it gets to raining. I need portable shelters for my pigs that are up in the forest. I’ve got to get a potting shed/greenhouse going. I’m going to need a smokehouse. We will probable start with building a sauna. A few outbuildings will be built on a steep south facing slope. I’ve been gathering up wood and getting everything ready. I have a large stack of pallets we have started taking apart. I’ll add some pictures in after I get all my materials together. If you have any experience with any of these things chime in...
 Jeff.

I KNOW, RIGHT!  If I just need some gentle vids and learn so much at the same time I just let their channel runthrough. Do the think the folks would like their grass roof?

Their grass roof is fantastic as it's also a tree nursery!

Their working party group is also a very permies friendly idea. And you'd get your outbuilding built in 1 day

Is there anything this couple CAN'T do? I have asked them to adopt me but they weren't keen. If you saw the doughnut machine, did you see the hearse?

I saw your topic and thought of these as they are so neat looking.  And all made with wood from pallets.

This is meant as a playhouse but I see a chicken house:
