Strawbale Tiny House - Weekend Natural Building Workshop    Sat Aug 18 to Sun Aug 19, 2018, London, ON

The Art of Natural Building

Various Date Options
August 2018, London, Ontario

Straw bales are a highly insulative, low-embodied-energy, natural building material made from an agricultural waste product. For many, they are locally available and affordable. Straw is easy to work with for people new to construction as it is flexible and can be very forgiving.

This hands-on learning experience can be taken as a one or two weekend adventure.

We are building a practical, affordable and beautiful 300 sq. ft. bunkie with an open concept design and a sleeping loft. Being well insulated, it is the perfect design for going off-grid or minimizing energy usage.

Come build with us at this serene and inspiring property that hosts permaculture, herb and vegetable gardens, orchard forest gardens, native plant trail, an apiary, a cordwood project and an earthship inspired greenhouse, earth lodge and a snack habitat. Accommodations are available by request.
