Strawbale house as being built right now...
It is a very compact, low energy and environment-friendly post-and-beam straw bale house.
I started to draw our future house in sketchup to visualise it for my wife, she just can't read the architectural drawings...
We are building it as we speak...foundations are finished march 2012, we await the carpenters (Germans) for the actual structure (beginning of april).
In the mean time I rearranged some walls; added windows wood/alu tripleglazing to the model.
I also put in some technical devices (ventilation, pellet stove, hot water tank, electrical cabinet etc)
I will try to post a link to show you (the really interested ones) some pics of the building proces.
update : added some detail to the roof structure, pics can be found here :
I will try to keep the album up-to-date ;-)
I notice the hous can't be seen in street view...it's behind the white house...
