It is said that a little bit of knowledge is worse than ignorance, presumably because you think you can make decisions and do things that you don’t quite have the insight for. Something similar can be said for having a little bit of skill. Some people, once they have a smidge of skill, start to feel confident. They start to think about what you could do with those new skills, dreaming up awesome projects. Then they start on one of them … and it just turns out to be way more complicated and take much longer than they had thought it was going to. That is how I feel about our lovely straw bale studio - as lovely as it is.
