Do you dream of living a life closer to nature, full of peace and tranquility? Then this one of a kind, custom built, straw bale home is calling to YOU. Sitting on 2+ acres with tall pines and mountain views, this pristine home is waiting for some very special buyers! Built in 2006 by Natural Environments director David Wise, this 1 bedroom/ 1 bath straw bale home is as environmentally friendly as it is beautiful! Reclaimed glass doors frame in the beautiful Sunroom, the kitchen boasts gorgeous Paper Stone counters as smooth as leather, and the organic lines of the stucco walls flow openly from one room to the next. The stained concrete floors are not only radiant in appearance, but actually contain radiant heating through out the whole house (minus the sunroom), and the garage! Just add some music and prepare the clawfoot tub for a true spa day right at home! The house has a fully fenced yard and dog run. Oh did I mention the walk in closet in the bathroom, a lazy-suzan style recycling center under the kitchen counter, and the classic Straw Bale “truth window”- a stained glass peek at the real straw interior behind the stucco. The mini split unit works great as both an AC and a heater.
Straw Bale homes can save you up to 75% on Heating and cooling costs . They have 3 times the fire resistance of conventional homes, They are environmental responsibility in that , using straw instead of eliminating it, reduces our pollution and water consumption. The use of straw as insulation means that the standard insulation materials are removed from the home. Standard fiberglass insulation has formaldehyde in it, a known carcinogen. Bale walls also eliminate the use of plywood in the walls. Plywood contains unhealthy glues that can off-gas into the house over time.
