The south bump out is the one exterior wall that is not made of straw. We thought installing such huge windows on top of just two rows of bales was not worth the challenges. Instead of straw, this is a stud wall filled with Icynene, the castor oil-based, foam insulation we also used in the bump out ceiling. This stud wall makes the installation of our window seat very easy, especially when compared to other projects.
I put the shelves in place, awaiting the day when they would be filled with books.
The finished window seat is a great spot to play the guitar, contemplate the day, or
just enjoy watching the world.
