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!

    Is anyone setting up carpool or willing to pickup those taking enviro friendly transit? I am also willing to rent a personal vehicle from someone near Menifee/Lake Elsinore/Perris for $5 day to do this. I am interested to find out how this holds up in comparison with other natural materials such As wood used in log cabin kits. my cousin also builds sustainable living structures using pallet housing corn cob houses and perhaps straw bale homes as well. of course salvaged materials such as jeans as insulation and alt homes like tree houses and adapting to envt conditions by building for them and maybe changing HOW we live, some we can learn from wildlife like the way nothing comes out in extreme heat, (except man insistent that 6amto8pm/9to5 is the only way to live. and I would like to talk about how this fits in with seasons in various areas and hot or cold climates as well as building then. solar panels
