A Great Example of Straw Bale Construction Energy Efficiency
Yesterday I spent the entire day neutralizing, washing, and sealing concrete floors that I had acid stained the day before. I figured the floors would dry quickly between washings since the temperature outside was 112 degrees!
“Unfortunately” bale houses are so well insulated that even with all the windows and doors open, the inside temperature never reached above 60 degrees and the floors took all day to dry in between coats. I realize now that it is important to factor about twice as much time as you think you need for finishing the floors since no other subcontractor can walk on them until the job is done. It is better to finish with some extra time on your hands than to need more hours than the day provides!
