Around the Bend Strawbale House, Pond and Gardens

Finally…the strawbales begin!

Plastering crew boss Tina stops by today, and gives us a lesson on balework.  After she drives out of the driveway we pick the simplest spot and lay the first bales.  Not too hard so far!  Tina says her crew could complete the balework in 2 weeks or less, so we figure our challenge is to get it done in a month.  Very quietly she says she’ll count on us being ready for plastering in “one month plus plus”.
