Hi all.
Our plans are all approved through council (Bal 40 not withstanding, specifying a thicker render allow us to pass).
We are currently awaiting our slab to be poured for the ground floor garage, then it will be upwards to the rest of the house on first floor!
Would anyone wish to share how they might deal with putting a 3m roller door into a non-load bearing post and beam straw bale wall? - a few more ideas could help us come up with the best solution.
Kind regards, Trish

Hi Trish,
Interested to know what the outcome was for the roller doors?
What did you end up doing?
Regards
Lou

Roller doors will require a post on either side , to support the door weight and track system.
a square post may do, an Lvl may cause minor problems as the roller door spindle is usually much wider than the opening, and if adding an electric lifting system room will be required for the motor.
to me it seems an oversite in the drawings , get your designer to proved a drawing detail for this area, note any bales over the opening will require a lintle to support the weight.
ps, if rendering over the post additional render reinforcement would be advisable, due to the bump and thump nature of these door when opened and closed.
cheers lance
