More Straw Bale Building
A Complete Guide to Designing and Building with Straw
by Chris Magwood, Peter Mack, and Tina Therrien


      Straw bale building is no longer a fringe idea, but has blossomed into a mature and highly developed construction technique that is widely practiced in North America and elsewhere. Houses built from straw bales are straightforward to build, affordable, super energy efficient, environmentally friendly, attractive, and can be designed to match the builder's personal space needs, esthetics, and budget. But with the evolution of the method, the details of what to avoid and how to achieve acknowledged best practices have also changed.       More Straw Bale Building is a completely rewritten edition of the 20,000 copy best-seller Straw Bale Building. It leads the potential builder through the entire process of building a bale structure, tackling all the practical issues: finding and choosing bales; developing sound building plans; roofing; electrical; plumbing, and heating systems and building code compliance.

      Now, with More Straw Bale Building, this technique is explained in the fullest depth yet, enabling everyone who wants to build with bales to do so with confidence, safety and flair and to do so in compliance with local building codes. Furthermore, while many early straw bale buildings have been built in drier, southern climates, More Straw Bale Building includes a special focus on northern climate construction.

      Straw Bale Construction guides the reader through every stage of the design and building process and is heavily illustrated with both architectural quality drawings and photographs of on-the-job action. With its extensive listing of further resources, it provides all you need to plan and then create the building of your dreams!
