Excellent Info Resource For Straw Bale Home Construction

Postby jpf1030 » Sat May 21, 2011 6:28 pm

Howdy All,
If you are just thinking about a straw bale home or have built already, as we have, there are many internet resources for info. A really good starting point is, http://www.strawbale.com/. From there you can keep going for every bit of info you need to know. We made numerous mistakes on our straw bale barn, but it was a great learning experience. We could have avoided some of our mistakes, but now we know and are happy to share our experiences, as well as help lead you to good sources like this one. We did enough experimenting and thinking of other evolutions to make a straw bale home into a hardened structure to be very earthquake resistant and even include radiation resistance. Whenever time allows, it would be fun to build another straw bale structure, well worth considering by anyone, considering the cost of heating and cooling conventional construction structures. Below is a clip from the homepage of http://www.strawbale.com. You can go there to see photos, links and tons of info...jpf

A Niche of a Different Shape

Stumble it!

When most people think of niche in straw bale walls, they picture the flat bottom, arched top nook with a statue or flower pot in it. I love that look myself and have made many of them. Recently, I had a workshop host who wanted something sweeter in their bedroom. The heart niche was the result of that idea. Made in the same steps as a typical niche, there’s nothing terribly different about it other than the shape.

What I want you to gather from this blog entry is that the only limitation to the niche you install in your project is your imagination. If you can think about it, you can most likely create it. That’s a great advantage of working with straw and plaster. So have it! Have fun and create beautiful things!

One thing that I have done in the past which can be fun is to combine a truth window with the niche. As an example, the heart niche here would have a glass back to it which would reveal the magic of the bale construction. It’s a cool way to bring some depth to any niche. Throw a couple built in shelves into the assembly and now you’ve got a useful and beautiful addition to the home.

Remember: Have Fun With It!

Want to Host a Workshop to Build This Cottage?

Stumble it!

I’m looking for someone to build this specific cottage in a workshop. It’s an amazing design for one or two people to live in, or it can be used as a guest cottage, or even a B&B building. It is 475 square feet and has a sleeping loft and full home amenities including a full kitchen, bathroom , and washer dryer.

I hope to teach a workshop on the structure in September or October of this year, so I hope you have a warm and dry climate that time of year. If you’re interested, please review the hosting details on my workshops website and then contact me by leaving a comment here.

I currently have a few people interested in building this great cottage during a workshop, and I’m still open to hearing from more of you. If you think you have the perfect spot for this structure, please let me know right away so we can get things organized and officially released. If you’re one of the folks I have been talking with already, don’t worry, I still plan on discussing the details with you and being that we have already started our conversations, you have a head start and a “place in line.”

Below you can see the floor plans and the elevations for the cottage. Click on the images to make them bigger and easier to see. Use your “back” button to come back to this page once you have viewed the images.
