Straw Bale House

Check out this awesome straw bale house! Yes, it is made with bales of straw! It is really neat looking, with uneven (ie: not all rigidly square) windows, and a general feeling of coziness and warmth. It looks like a wonderful little respite - I can just picture myself curling up all cozy on the window seat (see picture below) or napping on the patio.

I found out about it through Tracey Taylor, for whom I used to babysit. On her blog, she highlights some really great and interesting homes in the Bay Area, including this one. Check it out. It's cool.

For more info on the benefits of straw bale houses, see this Chronicle article.
