We’re keeping up with the times and have set up a Facebook Page for sharing our journey. It is quite similar to this website, but if you’re a Facebook user, you’re probably more likely to see our news and updates there.
We’re also created a Facebook Event for the March Long Weekend Workshop so that you can keep connected for updates (and even invite others!).
Our application for consent to be an Owner Builder is on its way to the Victorian Building Authority. Yay!
Three days in and the hound house has straw bales! All the bales are in and trimmed. Poles for top plates in place, with tie down wires in position.
Two days into the hound house build and we have the makings of a foundation. Never thought it would take so long to get out of the ground!
The full story of the hound house has its own page.
Evaluating the site for the new hound house!

A cold winter night is an excellent inspiration for some straw bale building on a small scale. Presenting the detailed drawings of a straw bale dog kennel for two pooches!
The full story of the hound house deserves its own page – you can find it here.
Fantastic five day workshop with Huff and Puff in Ganmain over Easter. Much more relaxed pace than Carngham – time to take it all in and learn the theory side of things. Great to meet more budding straw bale builders – look forward to hearing of everyone’s journeys from here!
Oh so many bales to be raised at the Huff and Puff workshop at Carngham. Worked pretty damn hard for three days. Great experience with a great crew!
