• Barkers Vale Dairy chimney

    The flue to the Rayburn woodstove is now in, adding to the cacophony of gadgets on the roof, just in time for the cooler weather that has arrived.  The garden is flourishing and blooming thanks our green-thumbed resident. 1 Comment

  • Wild Mountains straw bale home

    After a slow start, perfecting the layout and finding the right consultants, the strawbale home up at Wild Mountains is well underway.  480 bales took 7.5 hours to move them all up the mountain in two tandem trailers about 7 tonnes.  18 people helped install the bales, including Wild Mountaineers with 7 remaining to compress the bales.
