A farmer in Oskaloosa, Kansas has created a curious workshop where he teaches other locals how to build a shed (or home) with the old but tried tested method of straw bale.
Phil Holman-Hebert said he had so many people asking him about his straw-bale home that it gave him an idea how to meet his need for a new work shed and all the inquires, a week-long workshop.
Seven people signed-up.
“Part of our focus here is actually to teach techniques that should theoretically be legitimate, viable commercial quality techniques,” said Holman-Hebert.
It was that technique that brought Jim Brabeck to Oskaloosa from Olathe, Kansas.
