Here I am trying to cut back on my salt intake AND wheat products (gluten), but reading all your comments to tempt me. I love pretzels, too, but have difficulty in finding salt free ones. My lunch usually includes 4 crackers with either humus, sardines, or peanut butter on top. I rationalize that the toppings are good for me, counterbalancing the negative effects of the cracker. How sad, huh!

Thanks for that articles Joan.  I used to subscribe to Mother Earth News and read an article about a man that built a clear double-dome house somewhere in Utah.

It was an underground house with a small dome that let light in a 10 foot hole in the center of the house.  It had a large dome over that, with trees and plants in between.  He said it let in more light than most houses, he could see the mountains from his bedroom, and his heating bill was almost zero.

I was very impressed and would seriously consider it if I had the money.

Spud, the quonset was our chapel, it had a little cross on top and an entry room where we could close one door before opening another... the usual trick in Alaska to keep the warmth inside. It was a well insulated building. We had a lot of fun in that place, especially when we had our potlucks or parties.

I think a quonset would be a very fine small home.

Siloh homes

There are so many things that can be transformed into a home. Just let the imagination fly! You have a good start on getting your dream place.

Daniel, sorry you lost energy before you could make the rhubarb into something yummy, however, I hope you took the time to lie down, or sit, whatever is your preference and just renew and rejuvenate! Your body is your best friend telling what you need to know about yourself.

Ritz is my favorite.

Trader Joe's makes a Rosemary Raisin cracker that's so good with goat cheese. Also I could eat an entire sleeve of Ritz Everything crackers (don't judge).

Starbucks is using old shipping containers for new locations.  One just opened here in Chicago.

Years ago I heard that you could buy used shipping containers for a song, but I couldn't find any that were inexpensive, and moving them to your property was costly as well, so I gave-up on them.

When I was a little boy, my dad would split oyster crackers and put a chili bean in the middle to make a sandwich.  I liked them.

Pat, Spud, I don't recall sleeping in quonset huts.   In boot camp, the barracks were on stilts.  I don't know why.  If I recall correctly, that had something to do with alligators and scorpions.  I might be wrong.

In the town where I grew up, a few people lived in them.  The insulation issue did come up.

These days a lot of people are converting shipping containers into living quarters.   I imagine they are sturdy and inexpensive, but the insulation issue comes to mind again.
