Pre-fab straw bale panels used in Lithuania
- There's some nice straw bale eye candy in the gallery of this Lithuanian company.
Ecococon has an interesting approach to pre-fab straw bale panels. I hadn't seen 3', bale-length panels before.
And there are some subtle touches in their finishing work, as well: see photo 15 in the Pievos gallery. The left hand bottom side of the wall seems to have a little curved kickout to deflect water away from the foundation.
Photos 7, 8, and 9 in the same gallery show what I'd call straw bale insulated trussed headers (for lack of a better term) above the windows and other large openings. (Personally, I'd put some cripples under the headers to carry the load a bit better).
I came across this at the NaturalHomes.org facebook page titled Talking Natural Homes.
A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.
