I was really pleased to see an article in Dwell on straw construction, they didn't have much on straw bale - but they have been including more good information on green design.  The best part - they published a little photo of my straw bale home (p.98).


 
If you want to see more of my "extreme green home" check it out.  I also have written a bit about straw bale construction - information and "how to".  As an architect - I think it is the best building technique I have built with and I really hope it gets more press attention.

I really like the tin ceiling and the niches. My first thought was, "I hope those windows are double-pane," but I imagine they are.

SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! =]

straw bale is by far my favourite building method as well.
i got to work with sigi koko in virginia on a straw bale project, she was the consultant for a non-profit project.

anyway, i like how you blended the modern style with straw bale, pretty fun! house looks great!!!
