Review: More Straw Bale Building: A Complete Guide to Designing and Building with Straw

User Review  - Brigid - Goodreads

A great black and white comprehensive guide to building with straw bales. Everything is covered in this book. It does have a few color photos, but only a handful of pages. It also includes three great sample budgets for three different homes. Read full review
