This is only the beginning. I will try to upload one picture per week mainly on the topics which we have covered and will be covering in our blog in the future. Things have been progressing at such a pace that we have to collect our marbles and put them into some reasonable order again.

When having electrics in a straw bale home, one will need to know how to install it, as it might might be so that electricians will not necessarily have earlier experience with straw bale structures.
All of the wiring is to be hidden behind the plastered wall, or made to run in required places behind a special panel, so it is better to get it done right the first time. The panel solution also makes it easier to fix faulty wiring, if the need arises.
The wiring can also be placed to run in a tube which makes the installation easier.

The pictures are of a reconstruction of a stone-age sauna, re-built according to archeological findings.
The method of bathing in a sauna, such as pictured here, was presumably the following:
– A wooden frame was made to a size of taking in a couple of people.
– The frame was then covered with animal hides to keep in the hot steam.
– Stones were then heated up gleaming hot in a fire outside this ‘sauna’, after which they were placed inside this tent and only then could the bathing have begun.
