Hi, my wife grew up in Denver. We're planning on a slowly growing permaculture garden and food forest with hugelkulture beds. We'll have lots of wild flowers and berry bushes for the wildlife. And eventually pastures for some larger animals like donkeys and goats.
Does anyone have experience with an small barn or animal shelter built with natural materials? I'm in the prairie so I'm thinking straw bale construction. I'm also on sandy soil so I was thinking of earth bag. Something under 200 sq feet . Looking for input. Thanks
