Progress at Strawbale house in Southampton

IMG_4285

It’s all starting to take shape at The Piggery – a large, single storey strawbale house near Southampton that we’re working on with StrawWorks.

The I-joist roof is on the first quarter of the house, allowing the straw bale walls to be built in this part, and this photo gives a great view through the clients’ master bedroom door, through what will be the glazed gable towards the sky and trees.

We’ve purposely offset the ridge line of the roofs to improve solar gains into the various rooms and better frame the views towards the clients’ woodland.

More pictures to follow as work progresses…
