Getting a good hat.
Before RBA

One of the most important aspects of building any home but especially straw bale is the integrity of the roof. If the roof leaks and the straw gets wet it can be bad news. But then a leaky roof is bad news no matter. And getting that roof right means getting the roof bearing assembly or tip plate right. That starts by getting the walls square, then the RBA square, th
en the trusses go on and you have a much better chance of having a good roof. Here are a few shots of the almost completed RBA. Interior framing starts today and then the trusses go up tomorrow. Wow, I could move in!

Roof bearing assembly almost completed.

I had mistakenly turned comments off, that function is back on.
