B & V House

Out of the archives. Beginning pictures of the second Straw Bale house I built here in town. This was a tricky foundation to form up. So much rock we had a hard time driving in stakes. Ended up using a hammer drill and boring holes in the rock for staking all the bracing.

Always a big day when the concrete is placed
Now the curing begins
Ready for the steel 
Erecting the steel frame. Rule number one: never use a Back Hoe as a crane. Rule number two: wear a hard hat........

A big day when the trusses go up
Half way there
Installing the trusses is the easy part
Framing lookouts for the overhang, the slow part.
Perimeter sheathing
Let the roofing begin
First Winter
