We live in northeastern Oklahoma and I am planning to build a 1 story 40'x40' house on a conventional concrete stem wall foundation.
We have twelve acres and have a hillside covered in beautiful sandstone.
I've experimented with building slipform stonewalls on my land and have had some conventional framing construction experience the past couple years and feel pretty confident in that.
My question is, could I build the stud framing of the exterior first, then infill with light clay straw (for a 6 inch wall) let it dry completely, then do slipform stone (8 inch thick) on the outside of the light clay straw stud walls (using just one side of the slipform built up against the light clay straw wall as the other side of the form)?
I would build the roof onto the slipform stone walls. I'd run electric in conduit inside the LCS, then do a lime plaster on the interior with the stone on the outside.
Our climate is driest in end of June - September, so I'd plan to start the LCS in fill July 1st.
