"First Pig" is a blog dedicated to tracking the construction of our strawbale house in Harford County, Maryland. The title refers to the story of The Three Little Pigs, the first of whom built his house out of straw. My husband Craig and I, and Jeff Geddes, our builder (Paragon Custom Homes, LLC), will be updating posts and pictures of our progress.
