Helping others around us who are building there dreams.

  I would like to find a network of people who are planning to make their strawbale homes a reality and I would like to be a part of that excitement. I am currently in the Wichita area and want to help out and trade my labor for experience and take the pride in knowing I'm helping out others around me.

Hi Bale friends!We’re having a bale-raising in Muskogee, OK this weekend – July 12/13.  We are building the Applegate Cottage (770 sq ft, as seen on strawbale.com) as our primary residence on our certified organic vegetable farm.   We’ve got tons of room for RVs or tent camping.  We’ll feed and take care of you!  I’m a school teacher trying to beat the clock and have as much done by the time schools tart back.   We’ve got a 10’ porch all around the house, so we’ll be working in the shade and…See More

Dear Straw Bale Experts,



I have been trying to buy a straw bale house in my area (Reno, Nevada) for a couple of years now. I tried everything under the sun to procure a loan, but to no avail.

Meanwhile it's been sitting in the desert vacant, and neglected for a couple of year (at least) now. At some point this winter a pipe froze and the house got flooded. Well, I finally have found some money, and wanted to revisit the possibility of buying this property.
