Bale Walls

with 2 comments

With the strawbales all in its amazingly cooler inside.  And quiet.  Almost like walking into a cathedral its so quiet.  Bales block out all the heat and sound.  Once the doors and windows in will be very quiet.   Most passive solar strawbale houses won’t drop below 45-50 degrees inside during the winter using the sun alone.   A good fire will keep it toasty

Working on hooking the generator up to the pump to get water for plastering.


West wall and North wall. North wall at the back has been shaved (weed whacker) back for plastering. West wall has the unprepped walls. 18 inches thick

North and West wall all prepped for plastering. Window framed in.

House from the back half of the property

Wishing I had a glass of wine after shoveling dirt over some straw mulch.

    It looks so good Cameron! I’m so excited for you! You look good too – very un-Board-like and relaxed!! Hope I get my turn soon….but I just checked the lottery ticket I was SURE was going to win last night. Nothin’. Oh well. I’m doing a major clean/purge in preparation for getting this place on the market – realtors open house on the 5th or something. YIKES!!

    So much dust…………………………
