What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to Why You Might Want to Build a House of Straw
The DIY aspect of straw bale is making it an increasingly popular construction material for family homes. The attraction, aside from the environmental and health benefits of the material itself, is that you can get your hands dirty and contribute to the construction of your own house together with your family. There’s something about being able to say, “I built this home with my own hands” that is incredibly satisfying.
