    So I tried to think of the best way to utilize the hilly areas of the camp. Since you can't build cabins out there easily, I thought it would make a darn good hobbit shire with many earth cabins.

    The Ranger liked the idea
    Keldor Ironfoot loved the idea
    Most of you that I talked with loved the idea
    And now the board.. they loved the idea. This means the shire at esker moves to phase 2. Keldor and I are going to 3D model the proposed area and then the draft will be presented for permit. If it clears the town for permit, then we can get contractor bids for cost analysis. These hobbit holes need to be up to commercial code so that's a big unknown right now but a major obstacle has been cleared tonight in the 3 hour meeting.

    I'll post the proposed concepts here when done.

    We're looking to skin all cabins medieval and many more things with this property so it better fits out needs. This... is.... exciting.

    There will be a tax deductible campaign going up for this where people can help make the shire and get their names on things etc. It'll likely go up at www.campsinawa.com which I'm building right now.

    More to come...

    You could do cob construction dwellings that flow with the hillsides, with sod roofs. It would look very pastoral and rustic. And cob is easy and cheap to make, it's fire resistance, earthquake resistant and it can last decades if properly maintained. Plus it's a very medieval authentic building technique.

    Indeed, did you see the log building when at the camp? Inspector nixed the sod roof for commercial building already, but earn homes are different so it shouldn't matter.

    Here's some pics from the video I took of that building yesterday.

    Yes, but actually in hills at Esker. I need to get there to take some more pictures and finish the pre-vis.

    Also there are prefab shelters we could build into the hills like storm shelters.
