Contemporary And Comfortable

Unlike wood, straw can be fully replenished each year. Because we have not had much use for it, it is usually burned.

It happens to be an excellent building material: it's fully renewable, insulates well, and is fire resistant. These super insulated walls mean big savings on power bills.

Here is a couple in Australia that show off their straw bale home construction. Imagine living in an almost fully biodegradable house that is contemporary - and comfortable!
