Prefab Straw Bale Construction - Weekend Workshop    Sat Sep 29 to Sun Sep 30, 2018, Peterborough, ON

This is the first-ever workshop on prefabricated straw bale wall systems!

The prefab straw bale construction workshop is led by Chris Magwood, who has been working with prefab straw bale systems since 2000, and has been involved in over 20 projects that have used prefab systems. He is the author of Essential Prefab Straw Bale Construction (2016).

This workshop will include:

-One day of theory and design, reviewing a wide range of different systems and their components and cover construction, shipping & handling of panels, connections, services and finishes

-One day of construction of a number of sample panels in a variety of methods

This workshop is ideal for designers and builders who are interested in pursuing the idea of panelized construction, and homeowners who are serious about using prefab systems on their own projects.
