Happy Independence Day!

3 Jul

Hey Campers!

I wanted to take a moment to wish every single one of you a terrific, safe, memorable 4th of July!

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed – else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

We’re spending Independence Day weekend surveying and documenting a rural mountain site for future construction. It’s a small tract of riverfront acreage that just begs for a Corten Cabin and a beautiful barn so that the horses and cattle can run amuck, just as the Big Guy upstairs intended!

The beauty of ISBU housing is that it’s “transportable”. By that, I mean “deliverable” and not “nomadic”. You can build your boxes out as “modules” and then truck them to site to mate with your prepared foundation.

You build your ISBUs out in a fab barn or even on a lot someplace local and easily reachable. Then, you load them onto flatbeds or roll-off trailers for transport to your homesite.

I’m a big proponent of using 20′ High Cube ISBUs for home construction. There’s a reason for this;

They are easily transportable, readily available, easy to place on site using farm equipment, and extremely versatile. It’s like building a home using your child’s Legos!

If you’re using pilings constructed from SonoTubes, it can’t get much easier.

I love the idea of living in liberty, in a home built with my own hands!

Where liberty dwells, there is my country.  ~Benjamin Franklin

For those of you that yearn for our attention… LOL!

Happy 4th of July, Everyone! May your celebration be safe, relatively sane and wonderful!

Happy 4th of July, Everyone!

We’ll be back in the office sometime Wednesday afternoon.

Please, have a glorious time this weekend, enjoying family and friends.
