Wow, another day has flown by here at the straw bale workshop at the Common Kettle Farm. We accomplished a lot even with our fearless leader Andrew Morrison being sick and only being able to check in on us every now and then.
I’m physically tired but it has been a productive day. We had one layer of bales down yesterday and today we have all but the last row. in on the first floor and the 2nd floor has a good start.
We were doing complicated cuts and some of us became experts on the chainsaw and others of us moved lots of bales and other tasks. Straw bale is simple and complicated at the same time. It takes much more time then standard stick built structures but is a lot of fun with a large group like we have.
We worked hard, had fun visiting. Had great food and snacks and got lots accomplished. We probably will all be sore tomorrow but that is part of the challenge of this type of fun.
