I have been reading about straw bale homes online. Anyone here have any first hand knowledge? I am impressed with what I have read so far.

I don't know anything about building one, but I got to tour one this winter. It was so quiet inside! And the temperature was very pleasant.

Sorry, no actual experience yet, but my eventual dream home will be a straw bale.

Thank you Keith! What an amazing home! It is simply stunning. I can't believe the floor is concrete, it's too pretty!

I have been to a few workshops

I have had some experience with building straw bale infill walls. They are labor intensive and take a bit of skill, but the results are worth it.

The best advice I can give is to try and find a workshop near where you live. These are generally great hands on learning opportunities.

The other tidbit of advice is to check and make sure your local building ordinances will permit a straw bale wall systems. To get the proper permits, you sometimes have to educate the local building inspectors.
