Brilliant, I've been trying to educate myself about strawbale over last few years , I follow a guy in USA they do some really good stuff, where abouts is this one ? In the u.k ?
That made me spit out my tea... looks.like a fun project though
Clay paint might be an optionI see this is a pretty old thread, but we have a straw house that is lime plastered in and out and after 15 years I am ready to do something on the inside to finish/seal the plaster. It has 3 coats of lime, but no smooth finish coat so if you run your hand across it, little bits of sand fall off. I'm tired of it. Any suggestions on how to finish it so it's a bit smoother and possibly cleanable? Some kind of whitewash? Breathability is essential, so no regular paint and I am in rural California so professional plasterers are not really an option.
Well done , you are lucky. Find lump hot lime preferably , powdered will do as well,I'll give it a try. The ocean is only about 45 minutes away.
