    represented here. So thanks.

    I have a few questions. Is the earth berm only along the back wall? I don't know what jersey barriers are, but I can figure that out with the help of a search engine. Also, does it have to be 53' long?

      your designs, the wider the group of people who might take advantage of them and give you feedback. :)

      was to take advantage of some siting and materials advantages for the southern NY site, and I didn't change it because I'm still getting my feet back under me with sketchup. The earth berm is full height along the back wall and tapers down the sides, to minimize erosion. alternatively, in some settings, it could be embedded into a south facing hillside.

      I will take into account what you said about technical terms, and thank you, that's just the kind of feedback I'm looking for.
