Agree ... she has more than her share of that single quality for which I
have the utmost respect: self reliance.
Did my share of 'make things happen', with little help, when I was
younger ... just looking at her photos makes me yearn for those days,
and want to go back and do it all over again, only more.
She has my utmost respect ... one helluva female.

n dollar homes probably don't use it. Metal roof. Barns have had metal ro

ber frame barn and dig the footings by hand and build a little railroad to
transport the materials to the site. You would have not used electric tool
s and not used sticky roof underlayment and not used metal roofing. Either
all old time traditional or all modern. Not mixing them.

You have the style of old time but the durability of modern. They still
build new houses and call th em "colonial style" but are very modern
If I was building today and wanted the older style, I'd still want the
longest lasting roof material I could find. I'd even put a flush toilet
site access most likely limited
it has electric lights too and maybe other electric apparatus like
a table saw or drill press
time constraints are always a factor now so doing modern things
makes sense and will last longer
digging by hand could be due to site access and for other reasons
as well but most likely site access issues
she ends up with a nice shop with storage and a live space and how
she got there is minor
she probably was not concerned that it was authentic museum project
in japan they rebuild their ancient shrines every 20 years but she
probably did not want to have to do that so select modern materials
