    We are definitely interested in learning more about this house! We are considering building a straw bale house on a 118 acre farm just a few minutes drive to the west of this house near the Plaisance Park. We have much to learn about dealing with the municipality, and the Quebec building codes. We hope to even make our bales from our own fields.
