Michael Judd explains the construction and efficiencies of his round straw bale house in Maryland. Features include a super efficient stone masonry wood heater, super insulated strawbale walls, storm fallen timbers and living roof. This home is worthy of home design awards.
The house itself is round with walls that are made of actual straw bales. Walls on the inside are earthen plastered and they are lime plastered on the outside. This construction style allows the walls to actually breathe and as Michael puts it; “the walls moderate humidity and actually makes it very comfortable in the winter and the summer.”
