Welcome to the world of Strawbale Building.
Strawbale building is the use of straw bales to construct anything from a basic shed to a wonderful family home. It is part of a rapidly expanding natural/sustainable building movement here in the U.K. From this site you will find out about strawbale building, how to get involved, how to contact other like minded people, how to get started, what you need to know, what you need to do, and how to go about doing it, just click on the links on the lefthand Navbar and have a look at the FAQ's and some of the SB projects I have been involved in.
Please feel free to contact me, I welcome enquiries with no obligation, for your strawbale project from basic advice to actual building work.
Any comments or suggestions for this site welcome.

Have a look at the database of Strawbale Buildings here in the U.K. This will hopefully help others to plan/design/build their own!
If you have built your own Strawbale Building (whether it's house or just a lean-to) or you know of someone who has and would like the details to be included in this database, mail me the details.  What? Where? When? How? Who? and relevant Contact details etc.

If you have your own Strawbale Building related website please feel free to include a link to this site! or if you would like a link to your site. Contact me.
