This is an amazing amount of progress, John. Good for you!

Hey, with all the structural elements in place up there, will any sunlight be able to get through?!

Most projects in the country seem to take a while, but the results show the dedication. You're doing a great job.

Hope the panels will let the sun shine through, need the sun to grow poo tomatoes and poo potatoes. Or maybe I don't understand your building plan. I shall wait and see!

You have a fascinating lifestyle. Did you make your wind generators from scratch or did you get them complete.

John, spent an hour reading about C-Perlins. Didn't have a clue as to what they were. Now, if I could just figure out how they work (I sorta understand but not quite) I might be able to re roof my storage building with them. Guess I'll watch and see what you do with them.

Happy New Year

Marlene, perlins is, I'm guessing, the american spelling the english spelling is purlins. You might find something under that spelling, or look up roof construction
