Grain House Bins as Alternative Small Housing? Convert A Used Grain Bin To A New House —I know some of you will be saying what about tornadoes and nasty winds.. Well, that is something you have to think about, of course, but remember you could make the bins sturdier and add a foundation too.

I’m pretty sure this could work for my family and I. From a distance they will look like a regular old grain bin and because of that if SHTF people may just move on by. As a regular tiny house this would work really well too. The bins themselves cost between free if you can pick one up, to a few thousand bucks. These just need to be insulated and fitted out.

Yes, I know some of you will be saying what about tornadoes and nasty winds. That is something you have to think about, of course, but remember you could make the bins sturdier and add a foundation too. Check out the original article and if you like it get the plans and build your own.

I would love to hear what you think about this project and if you think you could live in one. Or better yet, comments and pictures from those that do live in one! Please leave your comments over on our Facebook page.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
