The Fallgren strawbale home, recently certified a Net Zero Energy Building through the Living Building Challenge, will be featured on this year’s Green Homes Tour!
More info can be found here. Carpooling and possibly a shuttle will be arranged closer to the event. Check back for more info.
We were honored to receive an Excellence in Energy Leadership award from SDG&E in recognition of our recent Net Zero strawbale project, the Fallgren Home. As part of the award, they made this short video that promotes the project (as well as SDG&E).
There is plenty wrong with our current energy system and it’s easy to find fault with the utility providers, so it was a nice counterpoint for SDG&E to help promote high-performance natural building. Click on the image to watch the video on YouTube

Athena and Bill Steen are well known pioneers in the straw bale and natural plaster world. A few years ago, we had the opportunity to spend a week with the Steens at their amazing homestead in Arizona studying clay and lime plaster.
