Urbana Straw Bale House
Tell us about your project
*Traditional Construction Heritage Award Winner* This lovely stuccoed and plastered house boasts many unique features in addition to its straw bale building blocks. Sustainably-harvested wild cherry windowsills, century-old salvaged maple flooring, and gorgeous panel doors from the University of Illinois’ Harker Hall make for a beautiful and environmentally-friendly home. Lime plaster and clay paint softly enhance the organic shape of the bale walls.
