Sun, Wind and Straw: A recipe for Success

Here is a nice little pile to celebrate Earth Day in. Glen Hunter and Joanne Sokolowski have built a post and beam home with straw bale walls, passive solar heating and no electricity. And this is no less is more entry-they have it all, everything except a clothes dryer. Treehugger likes Glen's attitude towards interiors- the walls are made out of book-cases and other elements that can move as needs change-"We built a 100-year house, not a 20-year tract home." ::Globe and Mail by [LA]
