Straw Bale Construction

We were requested to build this two story addition using Green building techniques and natural materials. The basic structure is timber framed from locally milled oak, and the thick exterior in fill walls are made of straw bales plastered in a period base mix of lime and sand. Interior surfaces are finished with clay plaster, and the flooring fabricated from recycled barn siding.

Use of local materials and resources qualifies your project for LEED points, as well as offering a result that fits the original architecture of a period home with the benefit of energy savings. In our work we are always recycling materials so we typically have little to discard.
