The straw bale cottage is almost complete and my friend had an open day today. It's an amazing achievement with only minor things to finish off before the first guests arrive next week.
I arrived for opening time thinking I'd be one of the first but soon a steady stream of people came to view & admire this sustainable building. I didn't get many photos as the rooms soon filled up and outside it decided to rain. Below is a link to a feature they had in the Yorkshire Post this week.
Another open day is coming up in September and I'll be going back then to see the result.
