Strawbale Building in Golden

I'M Back!


Inspired by my friends Kitt and Barb, I am going to try to catch up with my blog and then keep it up until this project is completed.

Luckily, documenting the construction of our strawbale home doesn't correspond to the actual construction of the house and the boys are making great strides.

In a nutshell: the stawbale walls were completed the end of November; a clay coat of mud was put on the exterior; it started snowing so work had to move inside; the windows were installed; the interior walls have three coats of plaster; it was still snowing; the drywall was hung and taped; the rough electrical and plumbing were completed; the woodwork is now being sanded and finished; the interior doors are waiting to be installed; it's 70 degrees so work is now outside; the standing metal seam roof was installed; the one gutter and downspout was installed; more exterior plaster was done; and decisions about interior and exterior color need to be made. Oh yes, the kitchen cabinets were delivered in February, all the plumbing fixtures arrived and most the lighting is sitting in our very cozy basement. We have also been doing some research on concrete staining and hoping to complete that when Jeff (our very competent builder) gives us the word. Whew!! I'm exhausted and I don't really do any of this.
