Repeating Patterns

Here are some photos I took because I couldn’t resist the repeating patterns of the wood rafters and other fun patterns at the building site of our spiral straw bale cottage.  Someday I want to make this experience into a book showing our mistakes and our successes.

The woodpile just delighted my eye.

I thought these looked cool before we cover them up.  Jugs and cartons save cobbing time and create insulating spaces.

Had to take a photo of these ropes because there is a snake hiding in them.  If you look carefully you can see his little head peeking out, and part if his neck.  But as I look at this photo, I just love the patterns of the ropes.
