Does anyone out there use leafcutter bees!? Supposedly they are 100 times more productive than honey bees! Honey bees and mason bees are not a fan of greenhouses as they dont like small spaces. Leafcutter bees can be used in humid, small spaces like greenhouses without getting stressed out. I plan to get some of these little friend's for the greenhouse I plan to build soon! #permaculture #farm #farming #offgrid #sustainable #sustainability #garden #gardening #growing #masonbees #vegetables #squarefootgarden #compost #bees #selfsustainable #farmersmarket #farmer #supportfarmers #love #veggies #instadaily #organic #tomatoes #strawbale #leafcutter   #agriculture #leafcutterbee #homestead #bee #rainwatercatchment

👋 Hello to my two, dear, premature fans!! 😝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Welcome to our property, Patina Palace! Thank you for your support and encouragement already! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have now reached a point where I’m feeling inspired enough to begin recording the crazy projects we set ourselves on our unique slice of land. May I begin by saying we are not normal!! Haha. We certainly don’t do things by the book and for me personally, I march to the beat of my own handmade, paint-splattered drum 🥁! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As we embark on this mammoth task of building our own straw bale guesthouse, I am certain we could use your help! I imagine almost all of my posts will have questions galore, as I tend to do first, then ask questions/research later! Maybe not the wisest approach but it certainly allows me to get more done (albeit, not as good as it could be). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you for reading and I hope to engage with you and hopefully inspire! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Amy -Patina Palace

Progress. Both pictures were taken from the same spot. The first one is today. The second one was Oct. 30, our first day of clearing. More than a month of the same cut —> pile —> burn routine had me feeling a bit defeated today. But when I get a good look at what we’ve accomplished so far, the excitement and confidence starts to percolate. We’re definitely on our way, and it feels pretty darn good. #weregettingthere #slowlybutsurely #Strawbale #Strawbalehouse #Ownerbuilder #Permaculture #Naturalbuilding at Carus, Oregon

My camera would not focus on these little starts, but I am stoked right now as this is the first plant ive grown in 7 months! The winter garden has begun to pop :D i should be starting the construction of my greenhouse in the next month or so and plan on making it heated for year round production! :D Who out there has a greenhouse!? #permaculture #farm #farming #offgrid #sustainable #sustainability #garden #gardening #growing #fruits #vegetables #squarefootgarden #compost #composting #selfsustainable #farmersmarket #farmer #supportfarmers #love #veggies #instadaily #organic #greenhousegrowing #strawbale #squash   #agriculture #nogmos #homestead #greenhouse #rainwatercatchment

Lights are still on at our place - surrounded by a sea of power outages on the east coast. Think about it: Our power grid is way too fragile to have so many people dependent on it. I’ve withstood at least 10 power outages in the last 4 years living off the grid. Best 4 years of my life. Hands down....Heads up! Bet on battery technology.

Finally took down the buckthorn tree that stood right where our bedroom should eventually end up. The irony is that we planted a little buckthorn sapling at our old house. And someday, we’ll plant some other tree elsewhere on our lot to replace this one and all the others we’ve cut down so far, hopefully grown from seeds dropped by the other gorgeous trees we’re lucky to have here. #treefelling #replanting #propogation #Strawbale #Strawbalehouse #Ownerbuilder #Permaculture #Naturalbuilding at Carus, Oregon

The Kids' Garden will be entirely surrounded by a perimeter of #communitygarden plots. This summer we installed the southern perimeter gardens and the garden was FILLED with seeds started by the youth nursery🌱⁣ ⁣ Our entire site is being built on top of compacted gravel so we built a #maze of raised #strawbale walkways surrounded by #HUGELKULTUR beds to give our plants🌱🌻 the best environment possible. ⁣ ⁣ We quickly learned that we also needed to build wind breaks along the fence line to protect the fragile new plants from the harsh ocean wind. ⁣ ⁣ Our #SOILBUILDERSCLUB regularly takes the #decomposing strawbales and uses them as our main source of #CARBON in our #composting process. ⁣ ⁣ Thank you to Gateway Education of the Wild Rivers Coast for installing the first community gardens! 🍇🍅🌷🌻🍈🍉🌳 at Family Resource Center of the Redwoods

I don’t think the frost on the ground is thawing at this point. I guess that means the cold months are here for real.

Today, one year ago, Thomas came to visit, the fire birds wings engulfed us, scorched the earth, burned our homes and broke open our hearts to a renewed sense of community. Hand in hand, step by step lives have also been rebuilt with foundations of gratitude, walls of strength, roofs of love and doors of insight. Our challenges have been met with resilience, our fears assuaged by helping hands. With one heart we walk to the rhythm of the future, wisdom gained, lessons learned, the light that creates what's to come. It is my hope that as we move forward we break the chains of stagnant thinking and embrace an expanded view of what maintains us. A longevity that has inner and outer mindfulness at its core. A collective, creative wholistic safe approach to home design, food supply, education, health, economics and policy making that truly reflects a will to transform, sustain and thrive. #thomasfire #anniversary #fire #recovery #permaculture #sustainability #future #community #ojai #ojaicalifornia #santabarbara #venturacounty #venturafire #strawbale #cobb #adobe at Ojai, California

Rasta Pepper! This pepper has slowly turned into this cool color pattern as it has been drying out. I didnt pick it this way, but am liking how its turning out! For those that dont know, i was living in Hawaii from April to November. Ive been back for about a month now, but i subleased out my room until the new year, so i am staying with my family until i can move back home, which is luckily not far away. Ive been getting amped planning out my greenhouse design and cannot wait to put all my focus into it and the rest of the garden! My winter garden greens have started popping up and i am getting excited for more homegrown meals! #permaculture #farm #farming #offgrid #sustainable #sustainability #garden #gardening #growing #fruits #vegetables #squarefootgarden #compost #wintergarden #selfsustainable #farmersmarket #farmer #supportfarmers #love #veggies #greenhouse #organic #tomatoes #strawbale #peppers   #agriculture #nogmos #homestead #solarpower #rainwatercatchment

The long of the short is, winter came too soon. The temps dropped too fast, and the exterior of the house will not be plastered until spring. Here’s a pic of Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, looking like a magical winter wonderland as I headed into work that morning. This was the week we decided we would have to create our own plan b. So we scrambled like field mice getting our shit together before more snow comes. Our exterior walls are now wrapped in Tyvek, like a holiday gift that will wait to be opened until spring. We have no idea if this approach will work, not many other folks building a strawbale home get cornered by snow and freezing temps and have to push back plastering for four months. But in theory, all should be fine. The interior will get plastered after our heater is built, allowing the plaster to cure properly for the next cpl months. The Tyvek is impenetrable to rain and wind, but will still allow water vapor to escape if any condensation collects as we heat from the inside all winter. We weren’t originally happy about the decision to employ the Tyvek. It felt a little like giving up and admitting defeat. But after a cpl days it felt like immense relief, as if we had a safety net to carry us through winter, while still allowing us to move in this winter and keep warm. So onward and upward we go. #naturalbuilding #winterwonderland #winterishere #missouri #offgrid #ozarks #sustainability #sustainableliving #selfsustaining #strawbale #strawbalehome #planb at Missouri

Multitasking this week as our next cold front rolls in. We’re filling in our sub floor, and putting up tar paper and wire to prep for interior plaster. Windows are already installed and doors will be next as we move along. We are getting really excited to share the next, and one of the most vital projects for the house in the coming weeks...building our rocket mass heater. I’ll go more into the technical explanation and anatomy of a rocket mass heater once our final design is complete and we begin building. For now we’re simply enjoying the slow process of tedious prep work and taking it day by day. #naturalbuilding #strawbale #winterishere #strawbalehouse #tinyhome #localresources #usingwhatyouhave #livingofftheland #sustainable #sustainableliving #offgrid #missouri #ozarks #enjoyingtheprocess #patience #rocketmass #rocketmassheater at Missouri

Finally able to insulate the attic and utilize this structure's thermal mass to the fullest! Bring it on, winter! Styrofoam can be quite nasty from an environmental perspective, but to help avoid it ending up in our landfills, you can save your Chinese leftover dinner boxes as added insulation for your attic. Another eco friendly form of insulation in conjunction to straw bales is cellulose (shown in photos). Cellulose is recycled paper materials such as newspapers and magazines combined with borax to protect from insect and mold damage. We save up the styrofoam we collect from packages, egg cartons, leftovers, etc. and spread it throughout the attic. Then we take the blower and fill the remaining spaces with cellulose. #thenewagebuilders #sustainableliving #greenliving #strawbalehouse #strawbale #cellulose

@claybonesandstones

This is a straw bale music space/dance hall that I worked on years ago. The interesting facet of this project was considering acoustical needs. Creating a plaster to enhance the acoustics was part of our goal here. The texture of a surface treatment can create more 'liveness' in a space or conversely 'deaden it' acoustically. Smooth surfaces will create a more 'live' space. In this case live = diffusion of sound. A more textured surface will deaden or dampen the sound which relates to sound absorption. Considering acoustics isn't just for music spaces. It is also a consideration for social rooms, restaurants and the like. #accoustics #straw #strawbale #wallfinishes #naturalbuilding #fibres #smooth #rough #ecointeriors #ecoarchitecture

Maybe our first little piggy was onto to something here, straw bale houses! Straw bale construction has many benefits and advantages over other building methods; -Low cost of material -A low skill level to be able to install it -Has a high acoustic value -High insulating as the bales range from 300mm – 450mm in width, which can create an R value greater than R10 -Is a breathable material, which is resistant to fire, vermin and decay Straw bales have good structural capabilities and buildings have been constructed up to three stories high without a structural frame. To comply with Building Codes of Australia (BCA) you are required to build with a timber or steel frame...I don’t think the big bad wolf would blow one of these houses down!
