Bywong NSW (15 minutes from Canberra CBD)
A generous three bedroom post and beam strawbale home with loft and large deck, measuring approximately 300 square metres, was completed in Bywong in 2008.
The internal render for strawbale walls comprises of three coats of clay plaster, externally the render includes two coats of clay with a finish coat of lime plaster. All rendered strawbale walls are painted with vapour permeable products such as mineral paint externally and lime wash internally.
Strawbale walls were raised with the aid of a 4 day working bee facilitated by us and we completed the creative details and the rendering of all strawbale walls.
