Straw bale house construction is undergoing a revival in our country. There seem to be many reasons for this. First, the basic building material, dry straw left over from harvesting grains like wheat, rye, and rice is easily obtained at a reasonable cost from local sources in our farming states. Much of the work needed to build with straw bales can be done by semi-skilled workers. Community minded people, friends and neighbors, can come together for a “bale-raising” party.
