Depending on your local regulations, the bales themselves can be used as a load-bearing structure for the walls. Otherwise, you can use a wood or steel frame structure, with the straw acting as the insulation. In addition to the walls, straw can be used as insulation material for the roof.

The airtightness of your wall construction is of utmost importance. Leaks in the building envelope can cause warm humid air to seep into the walls, causing the straw to eventually rot. But remember, this danger is not only with straw bale homes. It’s a common problem in many standard homes, as seen in mold and condensation.
