Enough for Today!!

Uncle! I'm tired; bushed; had enough. We've made good progress this last week. A new kitchen floor and straw bale walls being built. There is a bit more to building a straw bale wall than just stacking some bales. You have to cut and re-tie the bales. You have to heft the thing into place. You have to get everything level and straight. You have to attach the bales to the posts:

Inside the house. Joni will finish up the corners...

The walls are straight!

Work will resume next Wednesday...

Kia ora Allan,
Looks to me as if you all deserve some rest and a cold one!

This is very impressive. I have been trying to convince my husband that we should build a new home from straw bales but his is adamantly against it. I will keep looking at this progress you are making for future reference.

Robb...don't worry. Beer is a staple up here... :)


I'm not sure how this thing is gonna turn out. We hope to actually finish it someday. If you have lots of free time, it is a great, inexpensive way to build. Tis nice to build outside the Home Depot Industrial Complex.

Thanks for the visit...
