icon Quonset Hut

Had an idea for hydroponics gardening. Submerge pony wall, approx. 3' tall, below grade. On top of same (widen footing at grade level) mount Quonset hut. Probably minimum of 16 foot wide to 20'. Quick construction, good barn raising mechanics for 3 or more to set up in a week. Good wind deflection, no maintenance. Wrap same with straw bales from ground level up and over top. Chicken wire over same wired to bales. Stucco or plaster over bale and chicken wire. This will give you about an R-60 value for summer or winter. Therefore cool in summer and easy to heat in winter, thereby reducing energy cost. I like the windmill idea for supplying water pump and lighting needs.
