A Great Example of Straw Bale Construction Energy Efficiency

Straw Bale Construction Energy EfficiencyYesterday 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!

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!
