Straw House

This new home in Derbyshire is a self build dream for a couple of first time builders.

Using straw bales and timber framed construction as simple construction methods the couple will take on the majority of the building work themselves. The home provides space for the couple to live and work together in a sustainable, healthy environment.

The new house takes the place of an existing planning permission for development of two traditional brick built houses. The Straw House is finished in breathable lime render with a brick plinth and shaded render colour to tone in with the brick surroundings.

Work is due to start on site later this year.
