Help Save a Historic Straw Bale Building

Written by Andrew Morrison

historic straw bale buildingI received this email today and want to share it with you all. We can all play a part in saving a piece of straw bale history: a bale home built in 1920 in France. This is not the first time I have posted this request and I am glad to see that the campaign is still moving forward with the goal of purchasing the home. You can read more below and see how you can get involved in saving a piece of straw bale history!

Dear friends of straw bale construction,

I hope that you have heard about the Feuillette’s house. It is the first house made of straw in Europe and the first one built with a wooden frame filled with straw in the World! It is 93 years old and in an excellent condition!

We need your help!

We only have a few days to go through the first step of the National Center of Straw Construction creation: buy the Feuillette’s house. You will find in attachment of this email an explanatory document of this project. Pending the grants files realization, we quickly need you to collect enough money before the first of November:

150 000 € as solidarity loan (zero-interest loan)
70 000 € as gift

You can help by making a gift.

Thank you in advance for you support.

Best regards,

Anna Carbonnel, communication agent
