GANMAIN STRAW BALE HOME OF SUSAN WINGATE-PEARSE AND JOHN GLASSFORD.

“THE STRAW WOLVES”

The following gallery is a pictorial of our straw bale home in Ganmain.  It has taken us around 8 years to complete our straw bale house since we started building here.  It is now a beautiful home and serves us well.  The pavilions function well and in some respect one can follow the evolution of straw bale building technology in these buildings.

We love our home, built over time and evolved into a very comfortable house, even in summer, where the temperatures can exceed 42 C over several days.  We have still not installed any air conditioners.  In winter the pavilions work even better, and so far we only have a very small natural gas heater for our living room pavilion.

We are now working on our guest jumbo bale house on land adjacent to our home.  This building will serve as a place where people interested in straw bale building can stay and enjoy what we enjoy on a daily basis.
