View from the North West - Strawbale House Build in Redmond Western Australia
View from the north-west, showing the complete straw bale courses on the north face. A little bit of work left to do around the sides! When we were constructing the living area walls, Sue also decided she would be making coloured art glass lights above the east and west windows of the living area, so these need to be framed in at the same time as the high north-face ventilation windows. We therefore aren't compressing the top layers of the NW and NE living area walls until the carpentry for that has been added. - We have, however, compressed above the north lintels where the ventilation windows are going - the carpentry there is simpler.
