Tour de France
At present I'm hurtling towards the line of our straw baling weekend. I have all of the bottom, intermediate and top boxing to assemble and also external doors and window frames to put together. Also we are getting some of our piles of earth and rock shifted out of the way so that the truck with the straw bales can do it's delivery. They arrive on Thursday and if that's not exciting, what is?
Anybody who is interested in coming and helping put our straw bale walls up this weekend, if you haven't contacted us yet and want to take part, send us an email, we'd love to have your help. Look under our "Getting Involved" section for more details. I found there was something really special about contributing to buidling Ari's house last year and I hope all involved get the same experience. If you are coming - bring warm clothing! You never know what the weather will do in Merrimu, t-shirts one minute and rain jackets the next.
OK, enough blogging, I need to get back to the research.
