    Oh you can bet I'll be sharing. The soonest would be this summer, but I'm not sure. Depends on his work since I'm sure it will be mostly DIY.

    Becky, you keep at him...wear him down...make him miserable...HA...you know how to get your way. A beautiful home and piece of proerty does not need to be ruined by a "metal barn". Now if you have a back lane that winds down behind the trees and behind a hill where it would be hidden, a metal barn might be acceptable. HA!

    @Jeanette, you must have missed that he's already said it's a definite possibility. In fact today as we were leaving his sisters neighborhood in Central Iowa, he say a four car garage and said that's pretty close to the size we should build. I don't have to push him. I give him the idea and if it's right for us then it usually happens. Eventually. He pretty much spoils me.

      @J.Chapman We do a series of small cottages, too. Living with, and taking care of, and paying for less is very appealing.

    I will keep a watch out,and you are right.I see the small house movement doing nothing but growing,it just makes good sense,a couple,or a single person would be fools to do any different if they have land in my opinion,for the money saved if nothing else,and as you know you can take it to any extreme you wish,off grid is my dream..Add to this post...
