  1. We are definitely interested in learning more about this house! We are considering building a straw bale house on a 118 acre farm just a few minutes drive to the west of this house near the Plaisance Park. We have much to learn about dealing with the municipality, and the Quebec building codes. We hope to even make our bales from our own fields.

  2. Hi Beth. Unfortunately, I am not sure if it is available or not anymore. It is an older post, but I never received confirmation of the house being sold, so have left the post active. I’ll see if I can reach the owners and I’ll repost here if I hear back…
