Straw Bale House


A client led self-build project using straw bales as the external wall material and insulation, with an internal Douglas Fir timber frame. External and internal lime render, wood-burning stove and solar hot water. Please take a look at their blog for a week by week account of Willie and Wendy's build. This project won the 2012 Murray Armor Self Builder of the Year award. The National Self Build Association (NaSBA) gives the annual award for Britain's most determined self builder. Willy and Wendy's home stood out because it used mostly locally sourced, natural and recycled materials. For more information have a look here.
