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 6th - More straw

Another cracker of a day, and I thought that I might as well stuff hay while the sun shone (well - straw). Worked along the front wall, with Mal running ahead fitting the reveals at the sides of the windows. Reached about 3m high all the way along to the patio doors at the south-east corner, then covered it all with Roofshield breathable membrane.
Mal and Melvin continued inside with flooring, Melvin grumbling half-heartedly about being stuck indoors when it was so sunny outside.
The following pictures include yesterday's. Today's start with the green membrane in place.
