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).

Monday, 1 October 2007


Difficult to express what an amazingly beautiful day it was. Warm and sunny, with the moon being the only spec of non-blue in the sky all day. Spent the whole day on the roof, and almost reached the top. Felt pretty sun-frazzled by knock-off, which is pretty good for October! Started cold and misty (see photos), and London and Gloucester had rain, which merely enhanced the pleasure!
Anna was on site for a few hours, painting the steel post sockets with sticky bitumous goo. She also did a sterling job sweeping upstairs in readiness for the taper, whenever he shows up. Seems to be call-screening...
