Hello, Isaac Hill here, formerly Salamander. I used to be quite active on these boards but have since been consumed by other projects. My permaculture homestead is coming along quite well in the 5th year, but I am most excited about the upcoming release of my band's new album. We're called The Hills and the Rivers, we're a 7-10 piece acoustic, diy, family band (my siblings are in it) based in Pittsburgh PA. We've toured over much of the US, played at the last North American Permaculture Convergence and putting the finishing touches on our second full length, titled "Apocalyptic Dreams." We want to print it out on vinyl, but since we're diy, we need to raise the money first. This is basically just a preorder, but we're happy for any contribution! Here's the link to the indiegogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/pre-order-apocalyptic-dreams--2#/

Looks like a Trillium that is almost done blooming, the petals get transparent at the end of spring/beginning of summer. Probably Trillium ovatum.

Wow, thank you for all the help! We're in Ohioville TWP, http://ohiovilleboro.org/. This is the kind of stuff I get really confused about... when it comes to how plants grow, I got it, but when it comes to how bureaucracies operate, I am at a loss...

Thanks Landon! We're definitely going to be coming to the West Coast at some point, probably not til the end of the year or next year though.

Hey fellow permies, wanted to let yinz know about my diy folk collective The Hills and the Rivers, we're based in Pittsburgh but have toured the South East and Mid West (we even played at the North American Permaculture Convergence last year) and are going to do a lot more touring in the future. As of now we're all acoustic, but we have a full sound with bass, djembe, strings, woodwinds and horns... my siblings are in it so we're also a family band! Anyway, here's a link to our music online, hope you enjoy!

Vaulted. There is this weird gable type thing above the front door though.. not sure what's up there, and it's only maybe 4 feet at top above roof.

1988. Still not %100 but I don't think it's code enforced, I mean I'm really only insulating the house.

Ok, still digesting all that but here's what I got so far: The walls are (from inside out) 1. drywall 2. fiberglass insulation 3. Studs (obv with gaps) 4. Cardboard with shiny part facing in 5. Vinyl siding, so it seems as if there is no plastic besides the vinyl. I could take off the vinyl and tie the bales to the beams, but then I need to figure out to do with all that siding... but that can be done.

In regards to foundation, it seems that a rubble trench and gravel or scoria filled earthbag stem/pony wall with permeable bags and earthen plaster would work, no?

As far as venting, there are no soffits or anything, I plan on installing those too though.
