I believe this was one of the included bonuses for those of us that took part in the Passive Solar Greenhouse kickstarter.  Might I find it in "my stuff" when the final version is out?

Yes.

Although we originally planned for something simple and about 20 minutes long, this is gonna be a lot more robust and over an hour.

Thanks Paul and Josiah. I liked the movie and glad it follows the permaculture practice of trying something out until it works for you. Although I don't own land or live where there are plenty of trees for such a project, I appreciate the idea of keeping costs down and making something that will last a while.

Well done! I had seen the berm shed in YouTube videos and in other videos on permies, it is cool to see how the shed was built.

Excellent info, I would've been far better off if I'd jumped thru time and watched this before trying to frame up my chicken coop and wood shed using trees I cut from my property and sawed to fit.  The bracing idea especially would have saved me a ton of headaches, and that joinery info.  I plan to use a lot of what I learned from the movie when I start tackling my hybrid wofati/sunken greenhouse project this year.   The most incredible thing about being here is that no matter what jumps into my head I can come to the forum and do a little searching and there's almost always someone who has done the same thing and offered up all kinds of useful experience and ideas.   Thank you once again for gathering all this knowledge and all these ideas in one place where we can learn and try and overcome and improve together!

This berm shed would also make an EXCELLENT livestock shelter.

I have some stupid questions after watching this video. Basically, I am in New England and want to build a small version of this shed, like maybe one 10'x10' cell, for fun, idealism, and extra storage. I have several acres of big white pine on my land that I'd like to cut down and replace with more useful trees. However, there are no gravel or dirt mounds on my land, and I'd prefer not to strip-mine virgin forest soil for the roof.

I have a little carpentry experience but no experience with round wood building or earthworks and no heavy machinery or extra people. However, I also have no deadline.

- Which, if any, book(s) do you recommend to get the nerdy details to build a wofati-like thing? Is Oehler's book still overall the most useful? I looked up Law's stuff, but he uses a bunch of funny words and Paul seems to think in the video that his stuff is above our pay grade anyway.
- Where did you get the dirt and gravel to pack the post holes? I assume just lying around Montana? They aren't included in the expenses.
- How did you obtain all the billboard material? Just call the number on the billboard and ask, or more complex?
- Is a PDF plan available? Google was not helping me and I find permies.com rather hard to search. Happy to pay for one if it exists.
- Does snow fly into the front of the shed in the winter? Or does the 5' overhang mostly prevent that?

Thanks!

for plans, does this help?  https://permies.com/t/80/38510/berm-sheds#1031594

book:  mike's book will help some.  I would want to paw through a pile of dusty books to pick another.  

dirt:  all over the place here

gravel:  sometimes we sift it out and sometimes we buy it.

snow: a little might get in.  But I have no member of ever seeing any inside.

Hi Paul, I have a question about green logs inground and shrinkage, would this be a problem if i was looking to live in it?
I will use sharp stone to inground around the logs. Thank you Api
