In this 6-day workshop you will learn how to build a straw bale house with natural and recycled materials for less than 1000 euro’s in material costs.

A straw bale house has many benefits compared to a normal house. For example:

  • Cheap – for less than 1000 euro you can construct a whole house
  • Easy – gather some friends for one week and build your house
  • Isolation – straw is one of the best isolation materials possible
  • Natural – the main part of the house is build with natural materials

For this project we are cooperating with eco-architect Michele from nosolopaja.org, who has a great experience in constructing houses, outdoor kitchens, saunas and more by using natural and recycled materials. Check his website for more inspiring bio-constructions.

Investment: To change the paradigm of time=money into time=art, we don’t put a fixed price to the workshop but invite you to value yourself the worth of this workshop. What do you think it is worth to learn how to build an eco-house…? And technics that you can use to make your own comfortable natural house…? Don’t you think you need to experience this first before you can truly value this?

We want to find a way in which participants can value the workshop after they have experienced it, but we also need to make some investments before we can start the workshop. So this is our suggestion: We ask for a 250 euro payment in advance to assure your place in the workshop and to cover the pre-costs of the workshop. Then on the last day of the workshop you can value yourself the worth of everything you’ve experienced and created. This way of valueing is quite new to us and is an kind of experiment to get a more open interchange with visitors based on experience rather than on just blindly paying for something you read on the Internet.

Please note: People often find it hard to value the worth of something, so we like to give you a point of reference in order to reach a financial healthy balance at the end of the workshop: We feel and calculated that at least a minimum contribution of 441 euro’s is fair to cover all cost for organizing this workshop and as an exchange for the knowledge and expercience you receive.
