Strawbale house

This is the log of my experience building my straw bale home. I am told the pictures do not do the actual finished product justice, however, I am pleased to share it with all who are interested on this site. The trials and tribulations in getting the permit could have brought the project to an abrupt halt, but I knew in my heart that this was something I was meant to do and giving in or quiting was never an option. Enjoy........ and feel free to share with your friends!

Interior Doors

All the doors are different; this one is a mixture of cherry, walnut and oak.
This one is pine.
This one is pine also, just a different style. All doorways are 36' wide, to be wheelchair friendly, should the need ever arise.
Front door closet and front door.

The kitchen is manufactured by Kitchencraft and made from rustic alder, which fits very well with the country look and feel of the house. Another very 'neat' addition to the drawers is the Blue Motion, which makes it impossible to slam any drawers as a mechanism prevents them from slamming shut.
Countertops are Acryflek.
Appliances are from GE Faucet from Moen.

Kitchen floors

Cabinets are in, counter tops on and plumbing working!

Floors were stained with Kemiko Acid etching application, Malay Tan colour. As I wanted a 'tiled' look, we taped off the floor to give that appearance.
