Sprawling Straw Bale Farmhouse

We were given Pamela’s name by friends/neighbours in Geraldton, so we had a long distance relationship to start with. Her site visit was great fun and enabled us to expand on ideas and show her what we wanted from the location.

Her suggestion to move the kitchen is one that I will always be grateful for as it will be a much nicer place to work in, and fits better into the layout of our house.

She has been enduringly patient, as we changed our minds on numerous occasions, with a major re-drawing of the plans after a year of work. Working with Pamela has given us confidence to proceed as Owner Builders using Strawbale which is not something I thought would happen when we first started thinking about building our home.
