We believe that if you are going to be convincing in anything that you do then you should be convinced yourself. That is why we live in our own straw bale house. It is now 15 years since we brought straw bale building to Australia and for the past 12 years we have had the amazing benefits of living in a straw bale home made up of 7 pavilions.
Our own home filmed by Better Homes and Gardens in Ganmain this is where we live and we love our straw bale home.
Thank you Better Homes and Gardens and especially Johanna Griggs, ENJOY!

Peter Chapman has worked in the Southern Fleurieu region for twenty years living in the regions of the Willunga Basin / Aldinga Bay. Peter’s philosophy in construction is to build so that the buildings will be structures that last through generations.
To build with character yet with sustainable materials and with design that brings energy efficiency. To find practical and cost efficient ways to achieve these ideals without compromise to structural integrity and quality of workmanship.
Peter’s is a qualified Carpenter trained in building construction in Sydney NSW. A registered SA Builder and building compliance certifier.
