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 26th - Sheeting

Spent all day sheeting around the windows in bedroom 2 and the upstairs lounge. Seemed like prety slow going, even with Anna on site for a while, putting screws into boards that I'd fixed in place.
By the end of the day the bedroom was finished and the lounge just has the reveals around the waterfall window to do, once the window has been installed. This can't be done until we have the support timbers, which have been on order for a month.
Had a long chat in the evening with a chap called Magnus Wolf Murray, one of my potential volunteers. Turns out he works with carbon-efficient energy systems, and has offered to work out the heating requirements of the house, and suggest a couple of different ways to meet them.
