David Adamson of EcoBuild and Brian Fuentes discuss the construction of the Adamson’s straw bale zero-energy residence in Boulder, Colorado.
The Renew Home bath is almost complete- reclaimed barnwood, custom cast concrete ramp sink by Concrete Visions, who also did the hand troweled floor. The shower walls are by Artesano Plaster, and are tadelakt, or a Morrocan lime plaster technique that creates a waterproof plaster using olive oil soap and hand burnishing with a stone. Windows are by Zola European Windows, passive house ready thermoplus Clad. The stain is an antiqued yellowish brown over finger-jointed pine. The muted earth tones play background to the white Victoria Albert slipper tub.
