Sun, Straw and Earthen Floor 2
Total Sq. Ft.: 2160 Bedrooms: 3 Baths: 3.0
Based on one of our most celebrated strawbale designs, Sun, Straw and Earthen Floor 2 is an expanded version of the original. In this variation, the master bedroom and one large bedroom are on the ground level, allowing the home to essentially function as a 1,800 square foot single level home. However, a 340 square foot upper level study is easily adapted to become a home office, guest bedroom or the home's third bedroom. Versatility, energy efficiency, excellent building design and healthy building materials all combine to make this passive solar home an excellent choice for a family looking to build both a beautiful and environmentally friendly home.
