Straw bale house


Richie and Linda moved home to Ireland to build their home in 2001; Richie employed a straw bale house building technique he learned in the USA. Features include a geothermal heat pump, underfloor heating and clay painted walls. The build lasted just five and a half months and Richie did much of the work himself.
