Workshop: Remodeling a Home With Straw Bales

Saturday | June 03, 2017 | 9:00 am — Sunday | June 04, 2017 | 5:00 pm

Location in Palo Alto, CA

Come learn about remodeling a house using straw bales and earth plaster. This is a two day workshop which will focus on how to wrap an existing house exterior in straw bales to increase the insulation value and beauty of the home. We will install straw bales against a wood framed, single story house. Participants will participate in bale stacking, notching, window detailing, papering, lathing, and base-coat plastering. A mix of instruction time, hands-on experience along with a hand-out will provide you with the basic knowledge of straw bale building to go build your own project. Evenings will allow for additional question/answer time and photo presentations.
