Update March 2022
Covid-19 and Workshops and Consulting
Our work for sustainable strawbale building has for the past 26 years been based on workshops and personal consulting. Working closely with people to help design their strawbale homes, then leading workshops of 25+ people over a weekend of high intensity bale stacking in close quarters.
Because of Covid-19 restrictions and the health and safety of our staff, our clients, and our participants we are no longer able to provide workshop services at this time. For two and a half decades we have been advocates and educators for sustainable building and will continue to offer limited design and consulting for owners and builders.
You can still access all the information on this site but understand that any references to workshops are no longer offered and the website may not be updated. We wish you all a safe 2022 and we'll see what happens in the next year.
