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).

June 29th - Ground floor joists

I had to concentrate on the day-job today, and only made it over to the site for a couple of hours in the afternoon. By the time I got there, Mal and Melvin had got all the ground-floor joists in place and a fair amount of the bracing done (using noggins or dwangs, depending which side of the border you're from!)

I spent the time drilling holes for the remaining anchor-screws (or frame fixings) and cutting dwangs and joists with my faby new sliding compound saw. Quite a slick operation, with each of us concentrating on a separate task, and Boston drilling holes at random!
