2nd day

Today the last straw bales arrived - re-baled straw and by far not so easy to cut and prepare as the first bales, but this time with a right size. The cutting is advancing well, all cutting for the vaults, 208 bales, is nearing completion.

Lot's of things got prepared - for example sticks for connecting the bales together. They needed sharpening

Another group put together the scaffolding for the dome. Now we can work on two levels.

We started taping of the joints of the OSB board for airtightness, AIRSTOP tapes from Isocell are great for that purpose. I have not very high expections this time, most of the airtight layer will be done with clay plaster. Much will be improvised during building.

The formwork for the vaults has also been assembled and fixed. Everything prepared for putting in the strawbales tomorrow.
