This summer we completed the strawbale and plaster portion of an addition to the City of Union City Police Station.

Since the addition was located in the parking lot of the station, we were treated to a wide variety of comments about the Police Station of Straw from the policemen as they walked to and from their squad cars... Many were baffled at first, but as the work progressed and the walls took shape they became more and more interested, and even enthusiastic.

One of the policemen offered his target for display :)

The addition was designed by Indigo Architects of Davis, California, and Argo Construction of San Francisco was the General Contractor.
