The porch

Or at least, the beginnings thereof. Dave decided that we start on the short end of the non-public side of the house so that we could get our methodology worked out. It did not take long to get the hang of it, and by lunch time one side of the 4-sided 8 foot porch was framed.

The weather was great for working today as it was cloudy, but after lunch rain, and a thunderstrom, were threatening. We did manage to cover the portion we had framed and were pleased we could get the tools out of the rain under the porch.

The windowsills in a strawbale house are so deep it is great for tool storage while we work.
