I knew someone in Az. who built a strawbale house and have been intrigued. It was beautiful and very cool in the hot Az. climate.

Eco friendly . I love the look and feel of a straw-bale house. To build your own home with your hands.

I just lost my home in the California Camp Fire. I have seen a few of these straw houses, but was wondering how fire resistant they might be.
