Welcome to Straw Built Homes.

Once again .... Welcome to Straw Built Homes.

And thank you for your interest in Straw Bale Homes.  They are such warm, comfortable and energy efficient buildings, that we feel everyone should have the privilege to be able to experience and to live in one :-)

That's our goal really - To help get more Straw Bale Homes Designed and Built - and in so doing improve the comfort, quality and energy efficiency of homes built here in New Zealand.

We really have had a great time building with bales since the early 1990’s. It is a fascinating construction technique, which when combined with the creative designs developed by our sister company Sustainable Structures, has resulted in some pretty exciting and unique projects, in an array of different sizes and styles. From modest to the highest of levels of finish and detailing.  In a multitude of settings - literally from the Sand dunes to Mountain tops!

More importantly, in process of creating such warm, inviting creative dwellings, we have also developed some tremendous relationships with the owners and people we have had the pleasure to work with and meet.

We are very fortunate to have such a creative, enthuastic team and we would all like to invite you to enjoy our site, request one of our free information packs, and if you do have a specific project in mind, make a project enquiry so we can discuss things further :-)
