Plaster.

Today was Exterior Plaster Day 1 of Many.

It was an intensive build-up in preparation for today (setting windows and doors, hanging tar paper and lath, and otherwise attending to minor details).

To keep it simple, here are a few images of the process of bringing earth to walls.

Andrea and Weasel, our homeowners, joined us in the effort.

Josefina, Molly and Jeffrey apply a clay slip to the bales as a binding agent between plaster and the straw.
