Straw Bale Building: Stirling

Straw Bale Building Course near Stirling

5 days: 31 July to 4 August 2019

We are building an offgrid strawbale house as part of the development of our 5.6 acre site as a croft.  The emphasis is on sustainable living using low impact materials and building techniques. During this course, we will be building the straw bale walls so you will learn all about this natural building technique. We will cover practical aspects of straw bale building including how to dress and customise bales, notching, loadbearing and infill techniques, compression of the wall, and much more!


Rae Parkinson will be teaching on this course. With many years of experience and an outstanding reputation in the field of natural building, Rae ensures course participants have a fun, value packed time.
