While driving south along the winding road of Highway 183 outside of Pisgah, you will most likely see the familiar sight of grain bins, silos, barns and farmland along the way. What is unique about this sight is one particular grain bin, the only bin with windows that will now be home to Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative member, Chris Eyberg.
Chris has been a member of HCREC since 2017 and while he has been building grain bins for over 30 years, this will be the first time he’s constructed a grain bin home. Chris has been working with local carpenters, electricians, plumbers and more to make his unique home a reality. When completed, the three bedroom, 1 ½ bath grain bin home will stand 18 feet, ten inches tall with a circumference 48 feet. Eyberg is an outdoorsman and wanted to incorporate his passion for nature into his home. A unique feature is the red cedar log columns in the house that were locally sourced from Harrison County. Chris worked with his personal collection of antique hand tools to strip the bark to the natural wood finish that is displayed. With a goal of moving in by the end of the summer, Chris has been working hard to complete his grain bin house.
Thank you Chris for being a valued member of Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative!
