1. Given the media intensity given to the Covid 19 (otherwise known as Corona or Wuhan) virus, there seems no reason to have posts on that very specific subject in several forums Accordingly, all of those posts will be moved to "Headlines". All new items on that subject should be posted there as well. This notice will expire on 30 April, or be extended if needed. Thanks, folks.

    I picked-up a couple magazines this past weekend. One is entitled, "Home Power" and the other is "Backhome" magazine. Both are geared towards sustainable living. An article in "Home Power" disussed a completely offgrid, cordwood home. The link is below and very interesting.

    I've looked into cordwood before. I like that you can determine the thickness of your walls with the wood cuts. So you could have 36" walls!

    What thickness do you need again to stop a .50 cal?

    8ft, that is going to be one hell of an insulated home.
