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).

January 4th - down-day

No work at the plot today, as Anna was working and I was on childcare detail. I did, however, splash out almost two grand on a boiler, flue and oil tank, which should arrive in about a week, and took delivery of the various traps and fittings that should enable me to crack on with the bathroom installations tomorrow. Also measured the loft floor-area so I can order the insulation. At 300mm (12") deep, it's going to cost around £400.
