Dear natural and sustainable building Enthusiasts --
We are delighted to announce that we have created a short video of
the Builders Without Borders Strawbale Ecohouse project in Washington
D.C., which you can view on YouTube!
FYI, last summer BWB built a demonstration of "America's Traditions
of Green Building" including a load-bearing strawbale building, with
earthen and lime plasters, plus a bamboo shade structure and adobe
and cob arch for an exhibition at the U.S. Botanic Garden on the
Our display stayed up for 10 months, then was transported to a new
home in Maryland. (You can see the Ecohouse where it lives today at
Sam and Kappy's house at: http://www.breathworkstudio.blogspot.com/)
Thanks to a talented summer intern with video editing skills, we were
able to create this 10 minute video from over 18 hours of footage.
We wanted to keep it short so it could go on YouTube. We hope you
find it watchable and entertaining.
