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.

Summertime at our straw bale. Don't be fooled by green in the front. Weeds are very persistent. Our tax rebate trees are very happy and starting to fill out with leaves. We've planted 9 other trees on the west side of the property to hopefully have some nice shade in the not so distant future. More landscaping will happen after a nice long break.
