Straw bale House


Earth Garden has been watching the strawbale building trend grow in Australia and New Zealand, as people hold this innovative and sensible building method, whether for its environmental, aesthetic or economic advantages over traditional building methods for six years.

Straw House

Earth Garden published the first Australian book in October 2000 about strawbale building, and 'Strawbale Homebuilding' is now on sale in bookshops throughout Australia, in the USA, the UK and New Zealand.

Earth Garden have also recognized Australia's first publicly available Strawbale Discussion Board, to assist the free and frank exchange of opinions and information about all things strawbale.

Australians seem to have taken to strawbale building because it makes feel many of our climates - cold winters and hot summers are a part of life for most Australians.
