Jedburgh Academy - Idaho Facility
We are leaning toward the above design for the Jedburgh Academy primary building here in Idaho.
The design is called a 'Monitor'. We'll use a local contractor and pole barn construction, which is relatively inexpensive and well-suited to our location and intended use. We intend to have the building completed next summer. Of course the facility is already evolving - our square range will be finalized this season. Our Comms tower is in the design phase, and we hope to have it in place before winter sets in. Our Phase I seed vaults should be completed before the first snow hits!
The Monitor design lends itself wonderfully toward a training facility. The main (center) portion of the building can be quite tall, allowing either a loft, or open space, or a complete second-level that could house an apartment and/or offices. The ground level would serve well as a large teaching area, both for book work and working with gear in a classroom environment before heading out to our expansive acreage for field training.
The 'wings' on either side can be divided nicely into comfortable bunkrooms for visiting students.
This is for our primary site here in Idaho, where we have several building site possibilities, as well as extensive acreage (and great terrain) for every aspect of the Jedburgh curriculum. We expect students will rotate in for weekend classes, perhaps to stays as long as several weeks for those folks who choose to follow a more 'intensive' pace.
Remember, Jedburgh Academy is only one facility and school within the national network.
Every affiliated professional Trainer has his own school and facility - and we are proud to have affiliated Trainers now from coast to coast and border to border. This will allow our students to receive training near home, and allow our Trainers to travel to affiliated schools when appropriate. Here at the Jedburgh Academy we'll have the best Comms, Tactical, Medical, et cetera available - or you can get the same high quality training (and in many cases Trainers) in the Carolinas, elsewhere in the Redoubt, or the Appalachian Redoubt, Florida, Texas - wherever we can make it happen.
The goal is to put the best Trainers together with serious III Patriots to build an efficient, proficient and capable 'Officer Corps' for our Liberty Forces.
