FAQs - Straw Bale Construction

Can I build a Straw Bale house myself?

The simplicity of construction and owner-builder friendliness is such that anybody, including woman and children can be involved in the construction process. Bale buildings lend themselves to self-help, community-driven building processes where jobs are created locally and building processes are wholly inclusive of the building’s owners. As well as requiring only simple and inexpensive tools, construction techniques are uncomplicated and easily learnt. The basic skills can easily be taught to an unskilled person in a day workshop.
