october 27 straw bale house update

Stucco complete...interior framing complete...tomorrow the plumbing starts, electrical continues and the steel roofing starts. Still about a month away from move-in date.


The final coat of stucco still needs to be applied to the interior. The exterior final coat will go on next spring.

still harvesting and a house update

The grain harvest continues. We have been having good weather lately, but with such a heavy oat crop I have been slow to finish the field. I have about 2 hours left to combine and would have finished on Sunday if it hadn't of rained just a sprinkle...enough to stop me for the night. Yesterday, I spent the day helping with the stucco on the straw bale house. We are now finished with the scratch and brown coats of stucco on the interior of the house. The windows and doors and some interior framing will go on this week along with the stucco on the exterior. Lot's happening.
