Lessman Quonset House
The Lessman home is an enormous 40 by 120 foot "Quonset House" built from recycled and salvaged objects. The lower level is a garage and studio, the upper level has a huge living area and small hot house. The home has over 50 circuit breakers and over 150 electrical outlets. The main entrance to the living quarters is across a foot bridge with an old spiral, wooden staircase at the far end of the bridge.
Prior to building the new home, the family lived in the adjacent farmhouse that dates from 1864.
Ron collects fossils that are recovered from his gravel pits. He showed me tray after tray of petrified wood, coral, bones, etc.
