The New Strawbale Home
by Catherine Waneck

      In recent times, strawbale homebuilding has widely been accepted as a mainstream building method. Innovative architects and owner/builders are reinventing this century-old technology to create thick-walled modern houses of surpassing beauty. However, many people are not yet familiar with the beauty and possibilities of strawbale homes.

      The New Strawbale Home compiles flor plans and images from forty cutting-edge homes across North America, from California to Quebec, New Mexico to New England, showcasing a spectrum of regional styles and personal aesthetic choices. This practical guide discusses varying climate considerations and essential design details for problem-free construction and low maintenance, and also points out the ecologically friendly, energy-saving aspects of strawbale construction.

      Author and photographer Catherine Wanek has spent more than a decade writing, photographing, and filming strawbale technology.
