On Wednesday, August 20th we had a bale raising - that is we started building the straw walls of the house. What a fun experience!
Thank you to Tina and the crew (Travis and Mike) at Camel's Back Construction (http://www.strawhomes.ca/), for teaching us and assisting in the process.
A great big thank you to my colleagues (Allan, Manju, Hugh, Mark, Boris, and Kamal) who volunteered their time to come out and help. They did a fabulous job and it was hard to convince them to stop at the end of the day. Their work will become a legacy in the house.
Also, thanks to all of the crew from Havencraft that also assisted in the process, and have done a fabulous job with the house construction.
It was a great day, and thank goodness for all of the sunshine!
Take a look at some of the photos from the day....
