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).

September 17th - not much

Spent the morning installing the wiring for a security system in a pub in Jedburgh. By the time I got to the plot around lunchtime a bitter wind was blowing. I decommissioned the roof-platforms in preparation for moving the scaffold, then, as the wind has swung around to the north (hence the cold) I cut and fitted the last strip of membrane to the back wall of the house to ensure that no wind-driven rain gets in. The east is still pretty scantily protected, and I've talked Anna into spending the day there tomorrow helping me. We need to finish stuffing the wall with straw before we can make it weather-tight.
Worked out the timber quantities for the verandah today, and need to find someone who can supply it sharpish.
