LvsChant:
wonderful! Can't wait to see the finished product.

Hi,
Have you thought about maybe getting some stuff going in big containers while you still working and then you could move them if you have too until you see how they weather. I'm at about 2000' in Vermont so i have a short growing season. I'll be curious how you make out with the sweet potatoes. We have good luck with the elderberries where it's really wet. Oh and thanks for the info on the board.
GS :)

Sarey:
Oh wow. That is going to be really nice.

Is your home in an area where you get snow. I've always liked the "idea" of living or at least having another option for guests but here in Maine well, there is snow and cold to consider.

wdrobins:
Thanks for those pictures!  I'm really interested in seeing how that yurt turns out.  I'm collecting ideas for the future.

Did you buy a yurt kit?

 This yurt with a snow package to reinforce the rafters with 2x4 as well as 2x6 rafters is rated at 98 pound per square foot I am told which is pretty decent I think ..

the company is out of NH and there design is pretty much the same as colorado yurts one of the larger companies.

Right now I have a 23,000 btu kerosene heater. Hopefully that will work for awhile. I want to get a wood stove ..
