We have moved! (300 feet) – re-post

[This is a partial repost of the SESE blog entry on the new Seed Office which will likely be called “The Ark” because it looks a lot like one.]

We’ve been building a new office on our farm for the past couple of years. It has timber framing, a radiant floor, super-insulated blown-in cellulose walls, large south-facing windows, wide eaves to make it cool in summer, a loading dock, a small warehouse, and on the cool north side, an insulated, air-conditioned, dehumidified seed room with a straw bale wall.

The Ark is a demonstration building and has a straw bale back wall, which is beautiful - Sue from Little Flower is working on it here
