Straw Bale Timber Frame
"Chad is building using a combination of straw bale insulation and blown-in cellulose, with airtightness provided by lime-stablized clay plaster and a variety of materials from Pro Clima. As you can see, Chad treats each part of this project with thoughtfulness and care. Every connection is clean and precise. It’s built to last. It was also interesting to see a project that has incorporated a combination of very traditional and up-to-moment building science when building something truly durable and sustainable. Chad’s house is a unique and comprehensive example of natural building at its best. "
