Message from K_Wagner in Cascade Front #general
@ram3n that's my point. 6 men should be able to build a log cabin in a week. Then we keep clearing land to plant crops and grow a pasture.
I'm telling you, call me white trash all you want but holding your nose and getting a cheap trailer will keep you alive long enough to build permanent housing lol
white trash aren't going to go out in the wilderness and forge a life for themselves
Just don't want the first wave of us to freeze to death out there in tents
Or get sick
@K_Wagner if our ancestors could build a house that lasted the winter without modern tecnology we should be able to do it too.
We would be starting during the spring.
yeah we'll probably need a *lot* of insulation
That's more reassuring
or I don't know, a fire place.
unfortunately, because of how we've modernized as a society, we haven't really needed to pass down the knowledge of building homes that will last
so it'll be interesting
mossy rock has an average winter low of 20F. That's 40F warmer than my home of wisconsin.
20f isn't that bad
i've had worse in indiana
what's the average high?
Remember also that our construction will need a degree of permanence, since we're not just building a camping lodge for a bunch of bros, we're going to bring in our wives and families as well
And 20f is nothing, I'm glad to hear that
Grew up in Illinois lol by the lake
i think i'm gonna love it at mossy rock
Mossy Rock really sounds great
Is there any hunting?
i'm sure there's tons of animals around
@K_Wagner log cabins are gonna be temporary while we clear land and plant crops. We probably wont have modern housing, but we could do old world manors.
What a beautiful looking place
i wouldn't mind living in a permanent log cabin
i love the rustic feel
>digging out a basement to brew ales and ferment stuff
Damn I love this plan
The idea of log cabins is that they are cheap and an okay type of housing.
After we get better housing we can still use the cabins for storage too
The rustic feel is quite nice. Calls back to our ancestor's days in Europe.
