Straw House

There’s a new little house popping up on Short Street that’s using straw bales for insulation. According to the ladies doing the build, straw is just inedible stubble, left over from crops. It’s hollow and dry, as opposed to hay, which makes it an insanely great insulator. The word on the street is they’re going to seal everything up with concrete.

  1. Straw houses are great. They usually make them with rice straw, which is fire-proof, and as you said, they’re very insulated and termites don’t eat them. I don’t understand why people don’t make more straw houses. Cool!
