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!

Truth window

It is customary in a straw bale house to have a 'truth window'.
I chose a nautical theme, with an old porthole, with a lovely 'petina'.

Inside I have placed a spirit bear.
Native American legends tell of magical spirits that dwell within the forms of small carved animals. The most powerful of these spirits - strength and well being, are found in the form of the bear.

I felt it was appropriate that this spirit live in my truth window!
