Here at the ranch, I experiment with alternative construction. A style that I've found to be especially suited for this area, is post and beam construction. This coupled with salvage material allows me to have as nice a place as I'm capable of building for almost free. In post and beam construction, I can use the structure as soon as I put on the roof. This allows me time to accumulate materials w/o fears of losing what I've built to weather damage. The walls and floor get added when I get more time available and more materials to work with.
