I discovered this you tube channel a while back and have been bingeing on it when I get the time. He is very entertaining. Covers botany, geology, history, and makes social commentary, using the full beauty of the English language. So beware if you are easily offended. He travels the world so plants of the world are covered. He works for the railroad in California so many of his episodes occur around the tracks there. Check it out!

Dumb question,  but why not just Glaze the garage door opening and keep the existing "parking, turnaround, whatever" space . Would be a lot quicker, easier cheaper build. The garage becomes the solarium space. Then build another greenhouse in another place.

Kimi, when you get done with the posts in the pit area, and are installing the walls behind them, tamp the fill dirt behind the wall as you go up. It is amazing how much force the fill dirt will apply against the walls and slowly force them inward.  Just something we ran into up at the Wyoasis build.  Not sure if you have talked with Kani and Lyle lately about that?

Howdy Mark Welcome to permies! Are you anywhere near Laramie? They have a great composting program at their dump and give truckloads away for free sometimes. Is your land really flat or do you have any roll to it? How about drainage? What happens to the water after a good rain?

Howdy Kimi, I am looking forward to seeing what you do with yours. Seems like all of the folks who are building these are still learning about them and experimenting with the system.

About halfway down the page we see three folks who got a bunch of dough to improve woodstoves. Seems like it would have been better spent on rockets. Maybe next year someone here could put in for that money?

Thanks for posting Kani, lots of hard work, good food and good helpers all around.

Remember permies, if you want to spend some time in Wyoming, Kani and Lyle could use some helpers!
