So is this one going to have electricity? If so how are you going to run the wires? I was thinking maybe cut a channel into the small logs or would that have some bad consequences.

Oh, that's too bad. I recently got on there and was hoping to see more of your stuff. I'll try to post some of your articles and things. It's really great stuff that more people should see.

So I was on reddit and noticed Paul's account is no longer there. Why is that?

I was trying to figure out what you meant by above ground (it looks completely below ground in the book) and those photos helped a lot. thanks!

So I've been thinking of building a Wofati type of house for a while now and there's really only one thing I'm not getting. And that's how do you notch the poles and what not when your building it (as you can probably tell I have no building experience). In the book (which has been on my desk with many plans for the past couple years) it seems like you just cut two interlocking notches. Is that it or is there a special way to do it? Also I love the book, it's been a great inspiration.

There's no building codes in Montana if you're outside of town/city limits.

It looks like it's just above the tree line and seems to be too bright to be a house light so i don't know what it is. Unless your near a military base, then it's aliens.

The way a wofati is designed it doesn't have those problems, take a look at Paul's article it will explain all of that. http://www.richsoil.com/wofati.jsp Also Mike Oehler's earth integrated (underground) house is over 30 years old and has no problems with mold or rot.

I'm not 100% sure but I think it's that there's untreated wood in contact with the ground.
