Straw Bale Building Under Way – March 3rd

The frame is ready and the straw bales are going in. And there is no rain!!!!

Preparing for a bale cutting demonstration

Sewing the bale with baler twine to stop it from fraying before it is cut to size
Everyone is going to have a go….
Hammering in the sharpened hazel wood stakes to secure together the bales
Hammering in the hazel wood staples

Back to the bale cutting classes……
The walls are secure and taking shape
And sooooooo cosy and warm……..
The bales are going in one by one Lego-style creating strong insulated walls

The first wall is in…
covering the frame at the end of Bale Day one
