31. Slipstraw


1. Caption: Liza’s slipstraw wall
(1) Mix a little water and clay-rich mud together and toss with straw to coat.
2. (2) Pack it between two boards. Tamp it down. When full, remove the boards. Instant insulating wall!
3. (3) To make it taller, move the boards up and repeat. Finish with plaster.
4. Liza: Isn’t natural building fun, Les?
Les (smeared with mud): Almost as cool as preschool finger-paints!
