The Strawbale House« back to BOOKS

(336 pages)

Serving some time now somewhat like a straw bale bible, The Strawbale House Book is now approaching historical status.  It documented straw bale building methods and projects as of 1994.  It helped kick-start the modern straw bale and natural building movements along with Matts Myhrman and Steve McDonald’s Build it with Bales. Even though straw bale building methods and the overall knowledge has improved dramatically since then, the book still contains a lot of useful information.
