The best preparedness blogs out there
Back in July we introduced you to working with green wood on a project to cover an area for our dogs. So far, that roof is holding up just as well as all of our other covered areas that were built with traditional construction ready lumber. There are not any signs of damage, splitting or rotting anywhere, even after 2 days of hefty wind and rain from Hurricane Isaac’s outer-bands recently giving us a little pounding.
Today we bring you another project we have started working on using green wood. As mentioned in a previous article, we are experimenting with green wood building because we want to know how useful and long-lasting it will be in disaster and SHTF situations when traditional lumber may not be available.
Regular readers of the Pamela Farms blog already know of our yard issues, particularly our lack of grass which turns into very slick and messy clay-mud with each drop of rain. Over this past Spring and Summer, we did try to rectify that problem by adding St. Augustine sod, but the dogs, goats and chickens did not treat it so well. It is growing somewhat decent in the low traffic areas, however, in most of the high traffic areas, you can’t even tell it was ever there.
