I have been intrigued with bales houses ever since seeing an article on one when I was in high school (yes, many years ago). They are eco friendly, warm, ultra quiet and the thick walls create a deep window sill – something I have always loved.
There have been great advances in the area of green building and with that bale houses have come along for the ride. Prefab housing can now be combined with bale construction, taking away the need for sometimes hard to find builders. Most often they are thought of as farm houses, more country style, and smaller but any kind of style can be built with the right planning. An option we prairie people should look at more often as we have all the resources in our backyard.
