The Strawdio

A straw bale studio

Dropping The Roof

The first part of this video shows me trying to get the walls straight and stuffing straw in the gaps between the bales. The second part shows me removing the supports for the roof so that it sits on the bales.

I wasn’t quite sure how to drop the roof. It felt like taking off the supports that held it out would be a very dangerous and risky thing to do with a good chance of disaster.

However the straw was so tightly packed beneath the roof plate that when I took of the supports it hardly dropped at all initially and then gradually sunk down but only really by a couple of centimeters.

All of that is to say that these videos are very dull in the end!
