Step 2: Finding A Building Site

Picture of Finding A Building Site
To start this off you need to find a flat spot on the ground about 15ft by 15ft. Make sure that the flat spot is not near any water or near swamp land, becaues it will make the logs rot faster. Now rake the building site so the it is only dirt.

We had black locust trees where I grew up (UPSTATE ny). The wood was incredibly water resistant, might be handy if you can find it. In drier conditions (top of a hill), there was a fence over a century old when my dad got the farm - the locust posts were still sound.
