Wofati Eco Buildings
A home, an animal shelter, a root cellar ... these structures are optimized to be built on a woodland using thinnings that would otherwise be burned.   Three times faster than conventional, one fifth the cost and, if built right, will require zero heat in the winter.

Can you elaborate more on the content? Trying to decide whether to brave Rogers pass again. Last time I did (May 4th) I was snowed in Missoula for three days! Not a bad thing....except from my boss's point of view.

I think that would be a bit like stacking a brick on top of a bowling ball. 

Maybe I just don't have the proper imagination to understand what he's thinking.

I believe he is thinking of a Yurt sitting on a permanent underground structure, with a door in the floor of the yurt. This way a small area with pluming & electric would be there & perhaps a very small living/sleeping space should it be too cold to sleep in the yurt.
