Finca del Sol, Alberta, May 2019

What started as a small camping getaway property in 1998, has changed a lot over the last year. We had made plans to build a straw bale house here in 2017, and late that year got our building permit. Too late to do much more than get a hole dug for the shallow foundation before heading back to BC for the winter.

In 2018 we got the foundation in and the framing done, located good building straw, installed a photovoltaic array and began getting a few bales up.

We added the last bale, completing the walls in early May 2019 and now are working on the millions of other things that go into both land development and building.
