Free building plans for farmers

A granary

The web site of North Dakota State University has a large set of free plans available online as PDFs. There are plans for houses, outbuildings, and all sorts of interesting devices such as solar dryers for fruit. Be sure to look through the miscellaneous category.

Speaking of roadside farm stands, I saw them all over the place on Maui, selling things like fresh fruit, or treats of some sort made on the spot. I wonder why we don’t have more of that sort of thing anymore around here. Back in the 1950s, when the family drove to the beach in the summer, I think we passed stands advertising “Ice Cold Watermelons” every few miles. One does occasionally pass someone selling produce off the back of a pickup truck.
