Beginnings of a Real Adobe Wall

Beginnings of a Real Adobe Wall

This is the beginnings of a real adobe wall. I was thinking it would be fun to follow it’s construction here on APD. I am hoping to get to take a photo every few days till it’s complete.

    What seems like a thousand years ago, my grandfather in Riverside CA lived in a 2-storey adobe house which he had acquired long after it was built. However, grandpa always had a few adobe bricks curing for such things as outdoor walls & one time he did build a livable structure with the bricks, tho I don’t recall any use of straw bales. Are they a real requisite for a proper adobe building? Or just in climates that get winter, unlike SoCal?

Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
