We drive a car that runs on used vegetable oil and we built a straw bale house... we thought this might be a fun way to document our adventures and maybe, in turn, help others who decide to give it a go as well.
Note: If you are interested in reading about the building of our straw bale house check out the blog archive (on the right side a little ways down) from 2008- when we began our research and 2009- when we actually constructed the house.

Sewing the Walls
Fill in unevenness in the walls and cover bales with stucco mesh/chicken wire.
The smiles are deceiving :)
Then the sewing begins and continues for a week straight.
