A UK company has been finding an inexpensive way of creating homes from straw bales, and has broadened its selection of buildings to add parrot hides, home office buildings and an expansion to a cathedral.
Straw Works has been dealing with straw buildings for quite some time, and its own latest task - called "affordable homes for common people" - is focused on empowering clients, without prior experience, to create straw set ups at less expensive than conventional building methods.
Straw Works is rolling out simple, affordable and effective designs predicated on its straw bale council house model. To aid its design work, a suite has been created because of it of training courses, a web module, a DIY book and a Skype-based support service. It provides clients considering building their own house the opportunity to teach on other builds. Straw Work designs always go over UK specifications of thermal efficiency. The business can also achieve PassivHaus standards.
The Straw Works ethos is by using natural materials that are lower in embodied energy and meet up with the government's ecological homes standard. A straw bale house can carry on up to 200 years, left over zero carbon-rated throughout its life.
