The bales for this tiny studio were installed in only one day when friends, family and neighbours came together to learn about straw bale building.
The studio was designed to be as curvy as possible with an arched door, arched roof and curvaceous straw bale walls.

Bogdan Pękalski is an experienced self-builder. For years he has designed and created lots of gardens and home interiors for people who appreciated his style. About six years ago he bought a piece of land in Krzywcza, Poland and decided to build his dream house on a hill. More pictures at www.naturalhomes.org/polish-hobbit-house.htm

For large areas of grass like this a scythe is by far the best homesteading tool to use. Although a petrol weed-whacker might be tempting it does not perform well on these large areas, particularly in long grass [VIDEO].
For big grass cutting jobs a good scythe performs better than a weed-whacker.

Thanks!  I bought my friend a scythe for Christmas; I hope these videos encourage her to get out and use it.
