    Any more informations about that guy and his project ? It is fascinating to me what he did, because due to the very restrictive building regulations here in Germany it is extremely difficult to get the permissions. Would love to get in contact. Timo, timobent-at-web-dot-de.

        Hi Evan,

        thank you for your reply to my comment.

        Unhappily the mail delivery to all email adresses at shelterpub-dot-com failed permanently.

        Anyway, it would be very kind if you could send me some of Marco Trauth’s contact informations to timobent-at-web-dot-de.

        Best wishes,
