Plans for a Small "Starter" Straw Bale Home or Guest House solarhaven.org
a straw bale house plan, butch, "L", 2970 sq. ft. Pretty good shape but FAR too big for me!
STRAW BALE GARDENING is simply a different type of container gardening. The main difference is that the container is the straw bale itself and is held together with two or three strings. Once the straw inside the bale begins to decay the straw becomes "conditioned" compost that creates an extraordinary plant rooting environment.
