Hay is for House!

Barbie appreciates the fun in horseback riding but when she's not out feeding hay to her horse she's it using to create a Green Sustainable Home. No matter how much you huff and puff there's no chance you'll blow this house down!

The Hay Bale House.

This Napa Valley house that is partially constructed using straw bales provides comfort in addition to being green in design. 90% recycled materials comprise the home. Recycled glass & concrete countertops are among materials used in addition to the 2 1/2 ft thick straw insulated walls. Radiant heat warms the home in winter while cutting forced air costs & climate control helps to keep the 100°+ summer temps at bay.

Would you live in a House of Straw?

Kisses, m.
