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).

October 4th - sheeting & stairs

A big day on site, with Melvin reunited with the team. Mal spent the day installing the stairs, while Melvin and Phil sheeted reveals, having separately finished the shower-room and bathroom (Melvin) and the beam (Phil). I drifted around doing odds and sods, including running wiring for the smoke detectors and a light in the new cupboard under the stairs. I also had to drive to Kelso for ten sheets of gyproc and a box of collated screws to keep the lads going. The remaining windows and patio doors arrived from Rembrand, and will hopefully be in place by the end of tomorrow.
