The US currently produces an excess of straw sufficient to build half a million homes each year. Straw is highly insulative, giving heat savings of up to 75% compared to a conventional modern house. Straw bale walls have excellent load bearing capacity and are quite suitable for two storey houses with all mod-cons.

In the "The Effect of Bridge Design on Weight Bearing Capacity" civil engineering #science Project Idea, students build bridges using both straws and wooden sticks and then put them to the test. It's build and break hands-on science and engineering fun! A convenient project kit is available to do this science project.

bachelor loft - contemporary - Home Office - Other Metro - stephane chamardThe shelving unit is an Ikea hack. Many people love the clean good looks of the company’s Lack shelf.
