More about this Straw Bale House

This is the first straw-building house in the Netherlands with a building permit. Built with a steel skeleton and finished with earthplaster inside and outside. In the years that followed, the problems with condensation on the steel were solved. And the rain damage to the earthplaster at the outside is solved with a plaster layer of lime.
