Shack Project in 2003
The Work Began 5 Days from start to finish big thanks all my very good friends who help with this project. We started with the RF earth system 12ft copper Earth rod driven in the ground under the house,
The water table is very high here and the house was built on mash land which was Salt water and RF grounding is very good but we had to drill into 4feet of concrete to get to soil but we made it.
This system connect to the earth system outside in the Garden.
Then the rest of the shack was built around this as the pictures show.
