Bale Raising Time for Blue Dot Farm Garden Shed!

Updated: Feb 22

Arkin Tilt Architects

This workspace is aiming to be a low-carbon structure with straw bale walls, salvaged steel sash windows, and a compacted gravel foundation with a concrete cap, cutting the carbon emissions of the foundation by about 70%. Kudos to Verdant Structural Engineers for developing this detail. Permitted last year, it is now transforming into reality! Tim Weed led the musical entertainment with such classics as “Turkey in the Straw” and “Building for my World."
