I hope it helps people. I hunted and hunted around for a set of plans to build one, and came up empty handed. So I bought a set of paper plans from a dealer of natural building books. I forget her name. I believe she retired immediately thereafter and someone new is running her show. This was ok, except that the plans were in metric units! If something needs to be 1. Well, no.
