Pumpkin house acting like an airplane wing. Two days (6/1, 6/2) of high winds 45 to 55 mph have cause two 12 foot middle sections to pump out of the ground. The photo is the east side 4 inches up. Placed bucket of sand to hold it down. The west side section pumped out about 9 inches. I dugged down below enough to reset the 18 inch stud. The two 12 foot sections were dismantle and the assemble again. A bucket of sand was placed to hold it down. The house is based on Mark Clementz screenhouse design. If I was to build this design again, I would extend the studs down 3 foot for the North Dakota wind.
