Just a quick reminder to those of you who have finished building about the importance of registering your straw bale home on the International Straw Bale Registry Project through www.GreenBuilder.com. This is a great resource for other people who are looking to build their own straw bale home.
I often contact people who have listed their homes on the registry to see if they are open to helping a “newcomer” find resources, builders, architects, and other resources for their own project. Sometimes, all it takes is for that newcomer to know that someone else has already blazed a trail which they can follow in the creation of their own home. Registering your straw bale home is a great way to inspire others.
Sometimes the hardest part of building a straw bale house is not the actual construction itself. Instead, it’s finding the right builder, architect, or supplies to make that straw bale dream a reality. A great way for people to find the resources they need is to talk to others who have already traveled a similar road. You might not be sure if you want lots of people contacting you, or perhaps you’re clear that you don’t want that all. No problem, you can still complete the process of registering your straw bale home and simply check the box that requests privacy. Just by adding your information to the registry, you can support others in their path.
