Building with Straw Bale Demo

Barbara Jones who builds with straw bales in the UK, demonstrates how load bearing straw bale construction works. She shows us the various simple tools and components of straw bale construction (wooden pins that anchor the bales to a base plate, baling twine, the base plate itself, top plates, mallets, baling needle, strapping, etc.).

  1. I’d be really interested to see this – we’re hoping to build a straw bale house. Currently we are pretty off-grid so rely on mobile dongle for internet and can’t watch video. Would there be any chance of getting a dvd cut of this? Be happy to pay a small fee. Kindest regards Kate
