Just testing

Just setting up the blog on the off-chance that I have the time and inclination to post anything.

The house is coming on slowly, we are still putting on the clay mix (3 parts sand, 1 part clay, 1 part chopped straw) two weeks after starting; ten hours a day. We are getting close to finishing the third wall so if all goes well we should have all external walls done by the end of the week (22nd September). Then we can start all over again with the lime render and get the exterior weather proofed before the cold weather and frost starts.

Windows are due at the end of the month, closly follwed by the doors, and with luck the building of an cooking range (piec or kuchnia in Polish).
