Straw bale repair and installation

 

Long hours and hard work but it’s very rewarding to see the fresh golden straw. The bales once installed are compressed to create a strong solid wall, straightened by large wooden mallets and then strimmed to provide a good key for the lime plaster.

This project for COCA (Caeryhs Organic Community Agriculture) was led by Strawbuild in collaboration with the team from Hawkland Ecological Construction.
