This book is an essential addition to your straw bale library. Unlike other books on the topic, this material addresses the unique issues of building in northern climates. Straw bale builders, Peter Mack and Chris Magwood provide all the nitty-gritty, how-to-build-it information. They know the many unique construction issues faced by bale builders, including developing plans and budgets, picking the perfect bales, the golden principles of bale stacking, roofing, plumbing, electrical, as well as dealing with building codes and inspectors.

Peter Mack and Chris Magwood are professional bale house builders. Together they have constructed fifteen straw bale houses and structures. They teach a popular, on-going straw bale building workshop in Ontario, Canada.
