A break from studwork this weekend to tile the utiity room ready for the heat pump and cylinder to arrive on 30th November. First off setting out...
Then setting the aluminum angle which forms the edge of the mat well.
Starting laying, using a lime mortar (2:1). We weren't sure how wet to make the mix, so we started with it quite dry.
The first bit complete! It took us ages to do this tiny bit...!

Timber overboarding to kitchen wall
The clay plaster is now dry and so we started building the timber stud wall which sits infront of the clay. We are only overboarding a few of the straw walls - this one will have all the kitchen units and cupboards fixed to it (it would have been difficult to fix into the straw).
