Building your dream home, a garage, a shed, a wall, a store, a school or an office? Small or large, square or round, simple or sophisticated, residential, recreational, utility or commercial - the possibilities of building with strawbales are unlimited.
Strawbale building provides us with a real choice to help reduce energy consumption when building and inhabiting our homes, place of work, education, play and healing.
Straw is a by-product of grain production; it is an annually renewable resource which is often burnt by farmers. Strawbales do not contain the chemicals, glues and toxins most manufactured building materials embody and which often have a negative effect on health, especially for people with asthma and allergies.
Combined with clay and lime renders and natural paint products to finish the structure, strawbale walls can breathe and provide a natural, fresh and healthy living environment.
The thick walls seal out noise and carry a sense of quiet and timeless peace, much needed in our often noisy and fast lives.
Energy efficiency: Strawbale walls provide R-values between 8 to 10 compared to the values of 2 to 3.5 of conventional wall systems. Combined with a well-designed passive solar system strawbale houses require very little energy to keep warm in winter and cool in summer.
