This the start of our straw bale barn building in the field. Tess can be spotted in the middle checking the build standard! Not a straw bale in sight...yet. These are the footings, brick course to be laid next then the straw bales start. We collected 500 small bales from the fields behind us in the summer (on some of the hottest days if I remember rightly and sweatily!) and they are stored in the big barn. They will be secured with some hazel rods supplied by a friend in the village.
When this building is finished the next little job (hahaha!!) is to move all of our firewood and everything else from the big barn into this straw bale barn so work can start on the roof of the big barn which will eventually be another dog friendly house. Seems a long way off at the moment...... Anyone fancy a working weekend or two?!
