Hey Lloyd, I love your Shelter publications and I just stumbled across this amazing blog. Thanks for everything. I have a question though, at the back of Home Work is an incredible map of Native American dwellings; I no longer have a copy of the book (an ex-girlfriend took it, hah), do you know who made that map and if it still available for purchase? Thanks again for everything you do, it has been a true inspiration.

Can't find map anywhere these days. If you really want a copy, you could get Homework and make a blowup.

Vanishing barns: Sussex losing part of farming heritage


Demise of historic barns means a loss of important physical link to Sussex County's agricultural past

When a recent arson destroyed a historic barn in Lewes, the devastating blaze focused attention on Sussex County's vanishing agricultural architecture.

And experts say that regardless of the reason for the demise of those old barns, it means the loss of important historic connections to the coastal region's farming heritage.

"These barns represent a physical link to our rich agricultural past," said Daniel Parsons, historic preservation planner and records manager for Sussex County.

"Barns define our agricultural history," said Danae Peckler of the National Barn Alliance. "And there is a lot of agricultural history out there to be seen."
