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).

July 2nd - Ground-floor walls

Mal, Melvin and I cracked on with the ground-floor load-bearing stud walls, with help from Boston and, briefly, Toby and Oscar. Another day of sudden downpours punctuated by short periods of warm sunshine. Very annoying. Hammer-humour included my hitting my thumb so hard that it burst, and Mal missing a nail-head by several inches and putting a hole through the wall.

By close of play we had two sides completed, and plan to start upstairs on Thursday or Friday. Must get some scaffold organised...
