Inspiring Ideas Strawbale & Earth Homes
Photos of homes we've built to inspire you in creating your own beautiful home. These homes are: natural and made of straw and earth, usually 7.5 energy rated stars or higher, got clay internal renders, external lime renders, double glazed windows, pine ceilings, exposed slabs for thermal gains, solar hot water, solar power. Some have earth floors, wattle and daub insulated walls, marakesh or tadelakd in bathrooms or on walls, custom built timber kitchens, better than FSC timber (as there are only a handful of sustainably forested timber suppliers from Australian timbers). A lot of FSC timber is from overseas. These homes generally rate Gold or Silver in eTools (carbon life cycle of a home which means that they save over 80% in carbon usage compared with conventional homes)
