More Straw Bale Building: A Complete Guide to Designing and Building with Straw
Written by Chris Magwood, Peter Mack and Tina Therrien.
Published by New Society Publishers, 2005.
|Straw bale houses are easy to build, affordable, super energy
efficient, environmentally friendly, attractive, and can be designed to match
the builder's personal space needs, esthetics, and budget. Despite mushrooming
interest in the technique, however, most straw bale books focus on "selling"
the dream of straw-bale building, but don't adequately address the most
critical issues faced by bale house builders. Moreover, since many developments
in this field are recent, few books are completely up to date with the latest
More Straw Bale Building is designed to fill this gap. A completely rewritten edition of the 20,000-copy best-selling original, it leads the potential builder through the entire process of building a bale structure, tackling all the practical issues: finding and choosing bales; developing sound building plans; roofing; electrical, plumbing, and heating systems; building code compliance; and special concerns for builders in northern climates.
