Strawbale Roundhouse

I've spent the last 3 days felling and peeling about 70 Ash poles. These are destined to be the rafters on a strawbale roundhouse that is being constructed just across the valley from me. The foundations and strawbale walls have been built with the help of course participants by Strawworks. Tomorrow me and my team will start constructing the roof - 2 layers of rafters, insulation and a living roof, using these curvaceous Ash poles. I will be adding more photos and details of the process as we progress.
