Small, simple, straw-bale were the three asks from this computer programmer. He’d been living and working on a boat in the Caribbean and was now looking to lay down some roots yet remain off-grid. Oh, that was another must. It was refreshing to work for a minimalist who only wanted practicalities and whose only possessions were books. His ease made for an enjoyable design-estimate-build process, and he got all that he wanted from the Straworks Wall System No. 1. and then some. He got beauty, beautiful earthen-plastered straw bale walls.
