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).

September 27th - Roof & Sheeting

Nasty rainy morning, and we discovered a few worrying puddles in the house. Once again, I aborted the upstairs sheeting for a few hours and replaced all the omitted slates where the roof-brackets had been. We had to remove a sheet of plasterboard in the twins' bedroom to let the structural timber behind to dry.

Finally fininshed on the roof around 3pm, and spent the last couple of hours framing and sheeting around the velux units in the twins' room and the shower-room. Fiddly and slow job, but we're getting there.
