This unique straw bale home for sale in Mt. Shasta was built in 2008 using passive solar and straw-bale construction techniques (the entire south wall of the house is glass, and the home’s post and beam constructed walls are insulated with straw-bales). This home is conveniently located in “old town” Mount Shasta, within easy walking distance of the city’s restaurants, coffee shops, etc.
Some of the home’s unique artistic elements include: custom made pointed arch doors and doorways, stained concrete floors with mosaic detailing, concrete countertops, sculptural and curvy interior and exterior walls, extra deep window wells, and more. In addition to the heavily insulated straw-bale walls, the home achieves maximum energy efficiency due to its heavily insulated sub-concrete slab (2″ foam), its heavily insulated attic (approx. r-50 “blown-in” fiberglass).
The hydronic heating system in its floor, and the entirely glass south wall (which allows in copious amounts of winter sun) combine to make the home feel snug throughout, even on the chilliest of winter days. The master bedroom has its own private bath, a walk in closet, a sliding glass door opening up to the sunny south side, and double sliding pocket-doors that allow this space to open up into the adjacent living room. Other “bonus features” include thick front yard vegetation (including three 100 foot plus pine trees) which gives substantial front yard privacy, a low maintenance metal roof, and 9 ft. interior ceiling height throughout.
