The rain starts to come down…

..as we start piling strawbales on top of each other for the 20′ x 20′ music studio Al Thomas is putting up.

We’re up to the second level of bales; this is now being covered with plastic to finished straw bale blocks. There are 7 layers of upwardly mobile straw blocks to go, but we think the rain will stop and we can continue soon.

This is coming together quite quickly and Elly seems to be getting more ideas for the house she wants to build soon in a place removed from regular construction. I’m going to refer to the photos that document this overtime
stacking we’ll be doing on the rest of the building.
