Some of the straw walls are going to be overboarded, for example behind the kitchen units, where we need to be able to fix cupboards etc.  The plan this week is to clay plaster the walls that will be overboarded.

One of the challenges is how to get the clay up to the first floor... so we built a hoist!  It is made of a timber frame, on which we fixed yacht pulleys...

We constructed a small platform which would fit up the stair void next to the ladder (without having to remove the ladder).  Chains fixed to the platform hooked onto the hook on the hoist.

Time for a test run...

The hoist in action!
