Have you ever heard of it? It is an old style of building that is making a comeback.

You basically frame out a building with bales of wheat straw. Roof it with trusses, or stick built framing, and sheath the exterior and interior walls as normal. The insulation value is amazing.

I have built a couple of structures like this, one was a storage building for my tractor, and other items. The other that I am still working on is a small one bedroom house, basically a fall back shelter on my property.

Google this, and check it out, it is a money saver, and a great way to build a small house. I have heard of people building large two story homes like this.
