The Liv­ing Area

Homebuilding & Renovating - - PORTFOLIO -

French from Jeld-wen doors and (the win­dows cou­ple spec­i­fied their win­dows unglazed and un­painted to save on costs) en­sure the south-fac­ing liv­ing space ( op­po­site) re­mains light and bright. The walls are built from straw bale; the ma­te­rial has given the walls a rus­tic, un­du­lat­ing ap­pear­ance. “We had to suss out how to in­stall the straw bales. You need to drive hazel rods, 4ft long, through to make it sta­ble, for in­stance.” The walls have been plas­tered in lime (again, a task un­der­taken by Justin) and fin­ished in three coats of Far­row & Ball’s Lime White.
