In July 2014 Strawbuild led construction of a new
load-bearing, round home for the Wheelhouse family at the
inspirational Karuna Permaculture Project in Shropshire, UK.
The straw bale walls absolutely flew up with the help of the the
entire Wheelhouse family: Janta & Merav and sons Caio and Soma,
along with a constant influx of happy and willing course
participants. In only seven days Strawbuild were able to raise,
straighten and compress the straw walls, having been blessed by
some glorious Shropshire sunshine during every day of the build.
The round timbers for the reciprocal roof have been placed
expertly under the guidance of Simon Dale of the Lammas community,
along with some of his very helpful assistants. Now the building
stands ready to be plastered, hopefully in August 2014.
