Strawbale House

This blog is intended to chart our progress through the self-build process, from half-hearted plot-hunting through to completion of the build. The twist is that we're building the house from timber and straw (hence the blog title).

August 20th - Slating & flooring

A dry day, thank goodness. I spent the day on the roof slating while Mal beavered away downstairs installing the sub-floor, insulation and flooring and, finally, the partition walls for the entrance lobby.
Slating around the rooflights was a bit slower than I'd expected, but by the end of the day I'd knocked off the first of the big ones and almost finished the two small ensuite windows. Ran out of time and quickly stuck a couple of strips of membrane across the unfinished windows. Not much of a bond between gaffer tape and slate, so here's hoping for a calm and dry night...
