Straw bale buildings: carbon positive building

Straw bale buildings are built to last, using locally sourced, non toxic materials. By using these natural materials we are locking in and storing carbon for the buildings' entire life-cycle, drawing on circular economy principles and ensuring sustainability is achieved. Their low-energy, low carbon construction is also cement free, making them the ideal choice for many diverse building projects without damaging the environment.

Beautiful, diverse designs

Straw bale buildings can be used for any project

There are several ways to build with straw bales. They can be used for load bearing structures, infill for timber framed buildings, structural insulated panels (SIPs), retrofitted to existing structures, and even combined with other building methods. This choice ensures there are unlimited possibilities to create beautifully designed buildings using straw as the primary material.
