This energy efficient straw bale building is suitable as an office, guest room, studio or teenage crash pad etc and can be located in your garden or near your premises, subject to access via a low-loader truck. It can be used all year round with little or no heating, unlike most other types of garden building. It is built to a high standard with natural materials including straw bale walls, sheeps wool, wood fibre board, insulated roof and floor. The clay and lime plasters, being made of natural materials, create a healthy atmosphere with no toxic gases and as it is insulated to a high standard it will keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter, as long as you face it south.
Externally the building measures approximately 4.2m by 3.2m and is approximately 3.2m high. At present the straw building is unfinished and requires some clay plaster inside and an external finish of lime render. The building was constructed last year at the Grand Designs Live in London and was moved on a low loader to Suffolk where is it residing temporarily.
