Straw bale show house in Austria

Written by esba

Whenever you are in Austria you can visit this straw-bale house built by the Austrian based cooperation Strohnatur and in STEP workshops by ASBN in autumn 2018 on screw foundations with straw-bale floor plate and straw-bale roof.

The house was finished in DIY, so this straw bale house is also an example of how you can participate in the building process more than the infill of straw and clay plastering. Visits on request with Günter Fellinger, who also advises on self-construction and assistance in construction.
