Only a few more house wall sections to build then lots of over- and under-fills and the garden wall. And, of course, the feature fireplace wall. This wall has been a moving feast and now seems settled to being a multi textured, layers scening rammed earth wall. Maryanne and Andy are conjuring up something wonderful. You will be amazed!
Our house is now feeling more like an enclosed space. Its rooms and views are now defined. The safe, solid and comfortable feel of the rammed earth is becoming dominant. We often spend time after dinner wandering the floors in the late evening light. Last night we cut all the foam inserts out of the niches so we can now see the full effects of their shapes.
Our rammed earth crew and Caleb are camping with us under the macrocarpa trees. What a friendly, accomodating shelter those mystically shaped trees have afforded us!
Photos will tell the rest.
