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).

Planning Granted - 1st May 2007!

After a mere 6 months and one week, the Planning department have done what they initially promised to do in eight weeks and given a decision on our application. And, bless 'em - they've approved it. It's taken a lot of badgering and the involvement of a local councillor to keep their minds on the job, but we're finally in a position to finalise the purchase of the plot and, hopefully, get cracking on the ground-works. Now then - time to commence proceedings with Building Control...
