The Boxing King...

Fuzzy, the Boxing King has been industriously building intermediate boxing that sits on top of each 4-bale high section of wall, specifically for the purpose of providing stability to the structure.  Boxing is topped with straw... ready for the next layer of bales.
Up we go

A birds nest
All in place

Once intermediate boxing is in position, each section of wall is compressed by means of the strapping that's already in place, using a ratchet tool to tension the straps.  The tensioning process is repeated twice more after 12 hour intervals.  
Phew... they align!


4cm is significant.

A marked difference
after full compression.
