I have been watching and enjoying the videos. Great job everyone! Thanks for all the hard work. My question tonight, after reviewing DVD # 3 is where can i buy the ceramic fiber tube to use on my project?

I will be traveling from Wisconsin to Omaha, Nebraska this weekend. Can anyone suggest permaculture sites, farms, or places of interest to see along the way?

We have a earthen floor now. It is composed of a green colored shale (green clay and frac sand) that was taken from a nearby hillside when the site for the building was leveled. It is a 50x90 pole barn. The floor is very hard but forms a fine dust layer that is a mess if it gets wet. Dusty if dry or sticky slippery goo if wet.
I could use some to form bricks and experiment with different ratios of stabilizers. I am sure I can get a very hard surface but I wonder about how it would handle heavy equipment, or repeated foot traffic, Wisconsin winters,freezing/thawing and such. I saw a video were someone was using a garden tiller and a garden hose to mix concrete into his floor which was leveled with trowels once the material was well mixed/soft and left to air dry slowly.
I will try to go slow and figure this out. Still open to suggestions,Thanks

Thanks for the input. We have good drainage and use wood blocks for jacking up anything but the lightest equipment. I was wondering about the earth floor buildup itself, how many inches of base, ratios of clay to sand, what kind of finish layer. My main desire is for a surface that could take some exposure to moisture being drug in on boots with out getting muddy.

Looking for suggestions on forming an earthen floor for a garage/machine shop on the farm. The shop would be a place to work on farm machinery. It has an old broken up concrete floor that is cold and wet. I am thinking earth floor is the way to go but this idea is new to me. Any suggestions?
