An ongoing journal of building an "off-the-grid" solar homestead, life, boring tedious stuff, knee-jerk eco-socialist opinion, work (as little as possible) and family---from the edge of the wilderness (where the Sierra meets the Cascades).

Capping the Strawbale Wall...
After we built the window buck, we capped this wall to make it more secure. An easy process, just a couple of 2 x 4's connected to the Posts.
The wall is strong enough for Joni to sit on.
That's me drillin--attaching the 2 x 4's to a plywood cap.
On top of strawbale scaffolding...
Joni on top of the wall, sanding the Posts.
On top of this Cap we will create a window the length of the wall. That is, if we can figure out a way to do it. This is a creative process!
