The rainy season seems to be kicking in earlier this year :O

We're going to have our straw bales in place for the wall soon, together with all the window bucks installed. I would like to plaster as soon as possible, and insert the windows later.

On most projects I've seen, people install the windows first, then do the plaster. It seems like it's more of a challenge to keep the bales dry while the windows are being installed. Especially in our case, it might take more than a week to get the windows made and installed. Any downsides to covering the window holes with some temporary protection and just going ahead with the plastering?

Hi Alex,
simple PVC vinyl strip. Maybe stronger version of strip, and fix with staples.
And, cut few holes on each strip, to keep draft in the house.
 
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
