The beautiful thatched Straw Bale Studio in Oxford, MI, USA.


This beautiful Straw Bale Studio is in Oxford, MI, USA. It's a place to learn about natural building skills and sustainable living. The straw bale home is thatched with phragmite reed (bellow right), has earthen plasters with natural paints and uses solar electricity. The home was built by Deanne Bednar with Fran Lee, Carolyn Koch and many volunteers.
