Mezzanine Structure Built

Today saw the mezzanine structure in the studio go up.  Really starting to get a feel for the space that will be Kylie's studio.  Will also act as a scaffold for doing the bales.

The roof is working well as it still allows work to gone despite the rain.

Straw Bales - Finally

It has been a while in the making but we are finally at the point where we can start on the straw bales.  We had our first delivery over the weekend and Kylie is very excited - as am I.

So this week we get to start our first straw bale wall on our house.  Here is the first delivery stacked in the dining/lounge/kitchen. We did get a second delivery of 50 today, so picture this doubled.

The roof is getting closer.  Some ridge cap has been done as has some flashing.  Hopefully the weather allows for the roofer to complete the other bits.
