Italy's first straw bale house.


This was the first straw bale house built in Italy. It's a timber frame infill with clay plasters on the inside and lime plaster on the exterior and earthen floors. It was built in 2006 by Stefano Soldati with the help of British straw bale builders Barbara Jones of Straw Works and Bee Rowan of Straw Build. You can see this home and other straw bale houses on the Natural Homes Map.
