The Straw House

Waterford, Southern Ireland, a couple build an eco-friendly home using straw bale building techiniques.

When they moved back to Ireland from San Francisco, the Murphys picked out a beautiful spot in the south of the country where they could put their newfound knowledge of straw bale building to the test and build their eco-friendly dream house.

Two years down the line, and with two mischievous 15-month-old twins in tow, Linda Murphy says it’s the perfect place to raise a family. Though it might not be high-tech, as far as she’s concerned it’s the house of the future.
