Hi Glenn,

I have been researching the possibility of making my own one story elevator and was referred here to your page...all  213 of them!!

Any how, can't find the info but assume it's here. Can you please point me in the right direction?

Thank you,

Well Glenn, I finally finished reading all 214 pages! I've had some spare time as a new trucker, free of wife and kids for several days to several weeks at a time... so, could read in peace and quiet. So much to think on... I really have enjoyed it, and maybe will start poking around the other posts.on the forum too. ;-)

One good thing is that my wife has finally agreed that escaping the city is a good idea, raising kids in the country, and after seeing a couple YouTube videos of your's and some pictures of the wofatis out at Paul Wheaton's place, she likes the idea for our retirement house. She likes the possibilities of hanging stuff of the ceiling in the kitchen, the round wood ceilings and walls, but isn't sure about the flooring yet.

Maybe we can start with an RV or travel trailer to start staying on the land, and as we build. She agrees that we don't need a huge house, so I need to investigate basic plans for mainly 3 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and a living room. Other than that she wants plenty of outdoor/covered space, a 3 season kitchen and shower, at least 2 shipping containers for a shop/storage and maybe one on a pad welded down for a storm shelter (being in Missouri.)

Some of the pics on this thread show up fine, some are blurry and say Photobucket, and some never appear... wish I'd have found you earlier and been able to see them all. :)

Anyways, hope you and your family are all doing well. Thanks for all the info, and I want to document our journey when we get working, and hopefully be half as inspiring to someone else as you have been to me. The Lord bless you! Leif
