Strawbale Construction Workshop

Whenever I go camping, I usually wake up at the crack of dawn, this trip was no exception. But I did get to see a wonderful sunrise.

Here is Blu and Abi, slapping mud. I wish I had thought of taking some photos of the rest of the house. It's going to be beautiful.

We have read all kinds of books on doing this stuff, even watched a video about it, but nothing beats actually getting you hands in there and trying it out yourself.

Blu had a very good time.


And Abi, one of the best mudders there.

And here is me and Blu, smoothing out that mud.

And me. They had provided gloves for everyone to use, but Abi and I soon had those off, bare hands seemed to do the best job. I had been afraid the mud would dry my skin out, but after two days, other them my knuckles getting a bit scratched up, it wasn't to bad.
