Natural Building Network, Northwest Eco-building Guild, and City Repair are inspirational organizations. They are on the cutting edge of promoting sustainability to the grassroots and providing real options for moving forward.
I love pushing the envelope to get straw bale homes with earthen plaster permitted.To help owner-builder's "boldy go where no homeowner has gone before." Break through projects can have a lot of time-consuming 'red-tape' but their impact can be huge.
Building with Earth and Straw in Chicagoland. I've been involved in a lot of regional 'firsts' of their kind. It is exciting and incredibly rewarding for the surrounding communities.
I still haven't dialed in my earthen floor technique
I'm a natural building contractor from the Pacific Northwest. I have constructed 20+ straw bale and/or cob structures. I love helping owner-builder's dreams come true. I live in the south suburbs of Chicago now and work as a project manager.
