Would you be willing to share an apprx cost per sq ft for this home? - We are considering purchasing land in the Sierra foothills. Our desire is to build a small main house such as this, almost completely off grid.

In the range of $300 to $350 per square foot, depending on whether or not site improvements are included. Keep in mind that smaller buildings tend to cost more per square foot than larger ones (fewer sg. ft. to divide the fixed costs into).

The walls are PISE, which is a soil-cement finish sprayed onto the straw-bale walls using gunite equipment. That is the natural color of the soil, which came from Nunn's Canyon Quarry.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The family members did a lot of the finishing decision making on their own — primarily in the kitchen. Most of the interior materials are either prefinished or not finished at all to better the interior air quality. The PISE wall finish has a light grout wash but no other sealer, and the floor is polished concrete.

I've often advised that to have a truly sustainable home, one must really understand the details of how a house works. As our knowledge about homes increases, so does our desire to get involved with the design and construction process. That’s where straw bale construction comes in.
