5 Items

A 1600 sq. ft. straw bale house created for One Straw Farm during a World Hands Project 2-week workshop. Norbert served as lead contractor for 3 months after the workshop to oversee the project to partial completion. This home was created with a small budget and used local organic straw bales, earthen plasters and recycled shipping pallet trusses which were pioneered by Santa Fe architect Alfred vonBachmayer.
