    I thought this was an interesting link about homes built from straw.
    The R factor is 50 in the walls.

    A school down the street from my house was built with straw bales.

    I like the R-50 value, but I can imagine that the price tag on this home is more than a horse barn full of straw.



    I'm going to file this under "another home I can look at and will never afford" category.

    It's okay though, counseling is helping, a little.
