This looks amazing AND funny. Congrats!! I have already posted a link on our town’s recycling page. The town wouldn’t pay anymore so so folks got together to create a new program. That has sparked more conversation about reducing in general. Looking forward to this book!

Weeks??  Everything I’ve read makes it look like you wait two hours and then can do the second coat.

I want to use mostly clay in my first coat, then a mix of clay, sand/silt, wheat paste in second and final coat I may use linseed oil.  The truth is, I’m clueless!  I put a test spot of clay on straw today and it won’t dry.  I have no idea what that means.  More clay, less water?  I have been reading so many contradictory things that now I’m confused.  I thought this would be simple but I need a little guidance.

Thanks Miles!  This is getting WAY more complicated than it needs to be.  I’m sure someone out there has a simple answer.

I can’t seem to find a clear answer on using lime.  I know the first coat needs to be strongest and heaviest.  I also need to use a very clayey base because it’s going directly to the strawbales.  But should I add a lime/water solution to that coat as well as the second and final coat??  I always thought it was only in the final coat but now I’ve learned that makes the final coat too heavy.  Plus, I’ve read that the interior coat should be thicker than the exterior coat.  Help?  Anyone have some for sure answers to these questions?  
Thanks,
Stephanie
