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!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on this Blog. I would like to respond to them but unfortunately, I am unable to unless you leave your email address in your message.
For the people who asked the question on the paint: I used Eco House, out of New Brunswick and the dilution was from their paint pallet.
Do not use regular paint on this kind of plaster. Also, I used a top coat of sealant from Eco House, which in effect gives the house a 'gortex' effect.
