I got engineered plans for my 50 foot observation tower from the US forestry division free of charge. The tower is 50 foot high 20x20 at the base and has a 14x14 cab at the top with a catwalk around the cab. The tower is also rated for a 2500 gallon water tank (The water tank will never be installed) i just want to give you an idea of what the tower can handle. The tower requires 25 cubic yards of concrete for the pilings. The tower is rated for 100 mile an hour winds. I planned on mounting my solar panels on the railings around the catwalk and wind turbines to the top of the tower for max efficiency of said devices. My friends all laugh and say I am a nut for even thinking of constructing a tower this large in a remote location. One of my friends builds cell towers of all kinds and laughs at my idea because of the logistics and the difficulty of the build.
The build sight is 15 miles from the nearest road 30 miles from the nearest town.
According to the K.P.B. there are no building restrictions for my sight and I can do what ever I want out there.
Feed back and nut busting is greatly appreciated on this one folks. beat me up hard please!
