Barra Bunk House

bunkThe Barra Homestead has a bunk house for visitors. It's constructed entirely by hand with timberframing techniques. I could imagine a couple of these kind of structures around destiny, perhaps providing sleeping areas for those who can't tent and/or a couple stewards. Notice there are no screens. The idea is to live as closely with nature as possible.

Sounds great except for the no screens bit - I don't love Mother Nature enough to be a feeding pool for black flies and skeeters.

It would be interesting to see if we can build such structures as part of our minor revision. I'd always seen having ADA cabins and a number of folks wanted to persue more permanent tents like a lean-to.

I think creating steward living space is a great idea and one we should actively look into.
