The Hastoe Housing Group Building Straw Bale Development in UK

Written by Andrew Morrison

Hastoe Housing Group model homeThe Hastoe Housing Group has plans to build four homes, at Millfield, High Ongar in Essex, Great Britain. These homes will be the first ever straw bale housing development  built in Britain by a housing association. Furthermore, they intend to film the construction process as a time lapse production to be shared with other housing associations across Britain as a means of inspiring them to follow suit.

Straw bale homes, covered in lime render, are a perfect match for much of Britain’s rural architecture. The advantage of a straw bale home’s energy efficiency will only help to make this project successful for years to come both for the inhabitants and for the inspiration of other councils and building associations.
