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 21st - Slating and internals

Today was one of the foulest days we've had throughout the entire project, and that's saying something. Unrelentingly nasty with constant drizzle and a chilly wind from the north - and it's supposed to be bloody summer! The day's only saving grace was that it was a short one. The boys started school in the morning, a big day for Toby and Oscar, and we knocked off early in the afternoon so Anna and I could visit B&Q in Edinburgh to look at kitchens and bathrooms. Came away with a couple of toilets and basins, but the kitchens were of the most derisable quality imaginable. Most were disintegrating on display, as were several of the horrid plastic shower enclosures.
Mal pressed ahead with the flooring and walls downstairs, working in the dry, the lucky sod!
