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).

August 11th - framing & sheeting

Just Mal and me again, and I was only there till lunchtime. Mal's decided to work weekends, but how long Michele will cope with that is open to question!
I had a good clear out upstairs and bagged up several sacks of firewood and a couple of rubbish. Mal was busy framing up the bathroom walls, and once he'd reached a point where I could, I pulled cables through from the ground-floor for the upstairs ring-main and lighting circuits.
The were some dwangs (yet more bloddy dwangs!) to measure and cut. These will be installed below the bathroom walls, between the first-floor joists, but I couldn't fit them today because we had only one nail-gun between us.
