I built a few of them. Nothing in particular beyond the framed triangles to report. Should go like any other inspection.

As I recall from my hippie daze, the issue was all the joints were hard to seal and eventually going to leak, doors, windows, protrusions, and all those triangles, etc.

I'd pass on it like I'd pass on a straw bale house.



“The things that will destroy America are peace at any price,
prosperity at any cost, safety first instead of duty first,
the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.”
