Strawbale house update

A lot of work has been done on the strawbale house since the ceiling was installed. Dave and Barbara have kicked some serious butt, and are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

There is a toilet in the powder room, the walls have all been plastered and are in the process of being sealed with flour paste, the adobe floor has been put down, and light fixtures have been hung. And, a small wall heater has been installed that is coming in handy on mornings like today when it is 27 degrees at sunrise.

The place, still needing an official name, is looking great! It is going to be a very cozy and functional house. But should any of you think about undertaking a similar project, be sure to talk to Dave and Barbara first.

I really like the depth of the windows due to the straw bales. It's going to be wonderful and can't wait to see it in person some day.
