|Straw bale construction and its many other forms, contrary to popular fairy tales, can withstand fierce winds from flatulent carnivores. In fact, straw bale as a construction method is an all-in-one package of structural support, insulation, air barrier, fire resistance and finish. It is an ideal form of construction for the do-it-yourselfer and for areas that produce a high quantity of grains and/or lack lumber as a building resource.|
