A few pictures of the workshop

It seems an earlier post has gone walkabout ….

So a few pictures of the workshop. It is basically a timber frame building with straw bale Walls and lime render inside and out.

The timber frame uses the Segal method of framing. I had planned to add side supports rather than use plywood sheeting on the inside as the sheeting would have made making the Walls a bit difficult. The site slopes a lot with a 6 foot drop at one end. Instead I am going to use se plywood sheeting coupled with corner bracing to add se extra sheer strength. The lime render has made a big difference bit I do not want to rely on it.
