Strawbale -- European strawbale building discussions


About Strawbale
English (USA)

Discussions, announcements, enquiries, etc., about building with strawbales in Europe.

Straw is generally a waste product, therefore building with strawbales has very low environmental impact, uses locally available materials, is cheap, and is a very fun sociable way to build!

There are many strawbale buildings all over the world, including houses, schools, garden sheds, churches, community centres and toilets.

This list aims to help maintain a strong (and growing!) community of people in Europe interested in building with straw - from interested beginners to experienced experts.
