Around the Bend Strawbale House, Pond and Gardens

Straw bales are on-site!

Filed under: Uncategorized — aroundthebend @ 8:01 pm


The harvest has begun in this part of Canada, so bales of straw arrived on site.  We expected to have some from the barn where they were stored, but we got them straight off the field instead. We are starting with 300 full size bales and 100 1/2 size.  It is too soon for us to begin installing the bales, so they are waiting under a huge blue tarp for the time being.

  1. Wow! The first straw on site! Did you have someone grow it especially for your house? Does it have to be packed really tightly or is it a regular bale? Curiosity says, how much does 300 bales cost? This is so exciting—the house is looking so good!!! Keep up the hard work and don’t let the 3 little pigs near those straw bales or you might need to get some more!!! Love, Betty
