I actually do like the polebarn houses -- if we ever get to a larger parcel of land we would either build one of those or a basement home in a hillside. Keep us in the loop on the progress.

Looks very good.

Only suggestion I would make is to cut a two foot deep swale across the back and around the sides to make sure water coming off the grade behind you does not come through the building.
