Thanks for the title I got it for $6.85 including shipping. It cost more to ship than the actual price and takes 12 days to get it. ;(
Oh well.

Update to last. That book is not going to be in the projects. The publisher is in existance. Legally, we could, and they could do nothing, as they did not respond to the LOC Copyright Office. Michael had a nice long chat with them, basically educating them on the new copyright laws and decisions, and he did get permission, but a bit too grey, if thee takes my meaning.

So doubly glad thee found a copy!

I have the plans (thanks to a TMEN trade with Pate) for a root cellar. The plans call for building the floor and ceiling out of cement and the walls out of concrete blocks.

NOW, how much difference is there in building something like this out of the native stone I have all over my property instead of concrete blocks? I assume that I'll need to waterproof any rocks or blocks that are to be covered with soil. Anything else I need to do?
Thanks in advance
