Although having a background in traditional building & construction methods, we have gained a great deal of interest and experience in building with strawbales over the years. So far we were involved in the construction & rendering of 9 houses and other projects around Perth, including our own house.
Strawbale construction is a sustainable way of building with great insulation values and aesthetics . Both methods, load bearing or post beam construction, have their pros and cons. We recommend a lime render, although we have used lime /cement renders with success.
