About this project:

Straw bale construction is affordable, durable and provides good thermal performance. It uses a rapidly renewable resource and has a low embodied energy. Straw bales are stacked like bricks to form the outer shell of the home. Wood posts and beams are embedded in the straw bales to support the roof, window and door headers. Metal lath and plaster is used for interior and exterior finishes. The end result is a durable, environmentally friendly home. Off Grid Shelter’s House of Straw is a small house design that could be used as a vacation home, guest house or back yard office. The choice of colors and finishes was inspired by homes of the Greek Coast.
