My Straw Bale House - construction photos

Construction photos of my straw bale house. First of its kind in Northern California. With the help of lots of friends and a lot of elbow grease, it got built for about $25,000. The R-value in the walls approaches R-55. It's quiet, cozy, and not like anyone else's house. NOTE: These are scans from an old point -and-shoot camera.
