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).

October 3rd - sheeting

Had a full complement today - minus Melvin. I had a few errands to run, so Mal collected Phil, our new volunteer and set him to work immediately fitting bits and pieces of plasterboard upstairs. Mal was sheeting downstairs when I arrived with a frame for the front door. He installed this and tidied up the reveals while I sheeted the stairwell. Anna was on site again with her demon brushes, priming the fascia at the back of the house until she tired of the wobbly scaffold and turned her attention instead to the window frames.
I had to nick off to a meeting at lunch, after which I collected the stairs from Galashiels. They look grand. Very pleased with them, assuming they fit!
