Straw Bale Open House (free)

  • May 18, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • Private Residence

Come see a beautiful, efficient, lovingly detailed straw bale home! We are opening our current construction site, a 3 bedroom 2 bath custom straw bale home, to the public for one day so you can tour the home and learn about straw bale building. There will be straw bale experts on hand to answer questions.

If you were one of the many who came to the Open House-In-Process during the construction phase, this is your chance to see the house completed.

This home exceeds CA's energy efficiency requirement by more than 40% and includes natural super-insulation, clay plasters, daylighting, solar, greywater and rainwater harvesting, and native plants. Don't miss this rare opportunity to experience a straw bale home and see for yourself how this remarkable building technology works.

Completed Straw Bale Open House
Sunday May 18, 2014 noon - 4pm
1640 Chase Lane, El Cajon, CA

We hope to see you there!

    I hope everyone gets a chance to see this home even though i won't be in town this weekend (i will be out of town). The last home that Simple Construct built was on last year's SDGBC Green Homes Tour and was a beautiful eco-friendly masterpiece. Enjoy!
