Wyrd Talks - 02 - House Design

Hey Pals,

We're back with another Vlog, and to share more detail with you about our straw bale house design. We got such a great reception to our previous, and first ever, vlog that it's really encouraged us to make more. It's not always so easy to put yourself out there, but we're determined to document our self-build journey.

Here's our vlog:




Here are some photos to go along with our vlog, so that you can get a visual representation of the shapes and visuals. We will get around to also writing a more detailed blog at some point, and breaking down the design aspects into sections with a lot more detail. For now, feast your eyes on our dream eco home.

Wyrd Talks - Vlog 01 - Introduction

Hey friends,

As always, it's been a minute since we last updated the blog in any detail. We're finding it really hard to find the time to be honest. What with both of us having increasingly busy creative businesses, home schooling the two Wildings, and managing bits and bobs of the build as they're coming along...life is going by quite rapidly at the moment.

A few things have started progressing on the build recently and we really want to start documenting more as we go along. It's always been important to us to be really open and truthful about this whole process. However, without being able to find the time to blog well, we had a little spark of an idea a few weeks ago and decided to try our hand at vlogging - making videos of us chatting basically. Surprisingly you can manage to squeeze in quite a bit of information in a short video, that would take a much longer time to write out + edit.

So, we sat down and recorded our first Vlog as a bit of an introduction to who we are and what we're trying to do here at Wyrdwood. We were both a little apprehensive at the prospect of recording ourselves talking, but in honour of keeping things simple and honest, we decided not to chop + edit our chat at all, so what you see is the raw, organic and unfiltered 'Us'.


So, we hope you enjoy our first Wyrd Talks. Please let us know what you think and if you have any questions or topic suggestions for our next vlog, feel free to let us know.

Happy weekend, Folks!
