Synopsis: This practical guide is written especially for the owner-builder and provides step-by-step instructions supported by diagrams and photographs.
It covers the construction process from site preparation through to foundations, concrete slabs, strip footings and stumps. Special techniques for straw bale construction and the integration of these techniques with those of conventional house building are also covered, including floors, timber wall-frames, ceilings and roof framing. Advice is offered on plumbing and electrical work in a straw bale house.
"This book does not try to cover too wide an area, a trap that many other straw bale books have succumbed to. It concentrates on providing detailed information that will allow even the most green owner builder to fully understand the process of building their own straw bale home." (Linda Wilson The Owner Builder)
"This book is a good reference for anyone who has a desire to understand building construction or a desire to build a straw bale house to a high standard using well-researched methods." (Bohdan Dorniak, President)
"Building Your Straw Bale Home is a how-to book for people interested in straw bale building. It is a practical book reflecting the author’s personal experience, with tips and wisdom learned from his own pitfalls and mistakes. With admiration, I present to you this practical text on straw bale building." (Dr John Zhang)
"One man’s journey from conventional construction to the methods and materials of natural builders may help readers work their way through the various stages of developing and completing their own project." (Joyce Coppinger The Last Straw Journal)
