    My BOL

    Here are few pics of my spread. Sorry bout the blurry pics but you can see the basic setup. I just got started on this spot a few months ago and it takes awhile to grub up every stob so I don't pop a tire when driving in. I hope I uploaded correctly. I will be going up there this weekend to do a bit of work and will see if I can get some better ones.

    I have a home in a very remote area, and unincorperated town of 199 folks, an out of the way place, have my own well, septic tank etc.. However, I'm still caching supplies further out into a national forest just in case someone decides to search homes for firearms, or food.
    Trust me...if a fed wanted to investigate you, he wouldn't bother going all Yahoo! on you...you would never hear from him unless he was able to make hay against you...;)

    While I've never used the star plates, I have built this style of building for a few clients with conventional methods...I'll tell you one thing: It's a helluva lot sturdier than a conventional frame...all those triangles make for a very rigid frame.

Can't believe the price on the Starplates! Last time I bought them (3 years ago) they were $60 a set shipped. Remember getting them for $45 aswell. Built 3 up in Payson, AZ, and 1 in Scottsdale. They are all still standing! Lived in AZ 13 years.
    Yep, I *think* they were $45-$50/shipped for 5 or more when I got mine...lo those many years ago...

    Can you build platforms into the hillsides? Or is it too steep for even that?

    I'm thinking of building 4 of them, 9 ft sides. One will be the "hub" that the others are connected to by short hallways....line the hallways with shelves and cabinets...plenty of storage. One will be kitchen area, 2 will be bedrooms, the other will be bathroom/additional storage...utilized the Home Depot solar shed lights, propane tanks for hot water and cooking....

    I'd find a (used) Qounset Hut, excavate a ditch or burm the Hut. The old WW2 Qounsets are quite sturdy.

    Not a fan of the "dome" look myself...but when you consider the wind we have out here...I think it's a good idea to let the wind slip around the structure as opposed to slamming into it....

    Everything is flat...I wish there was at least a small hill between the property and I-20...it's about 3 miles off the highway...

    I picked it up for..hmmm..$4399 cash.
    I'm thinking about picking up a conex for storage, and building a couple of these for a "cabin".

    I built one of these for a backyard shed in Phoenix...I figure I can pop up a couple with short walkways in between them...and have a decent little setup for under $2000 and a couple of weekends of work.

    You got that right! The highest elevation is a highway overpass! :D
