Description

The straw bale outer walls provide great insulation from both the weather and sound, and the deeply recessed windows create natural spaces for plants and/or art. The original homeowners had stained concrete floors poured over a radiant heat system. Approximately one–third of the house is dedicated to the master suite, while living, dining and cooking spaces take up the remainder of the house.
