Straw-bale house construction timeline

Peter Maltzan is building a passive solar straw-bale house, and has been at it since October of 2008. He’s done a great job of documenting the construction process, which is now nearly complete, in photographs. Highly recommended if you want to get a feel for how it all goes together. Thanks to MAKE subscriber Pete Marchetto for suggesting the link.
