Back home in Ganmain after three weeks on the road, well four.  Here is one of the beautiful SITUPS Straw Panel homes that we supplied and helped to put up the walls while away on this trip. Our clients John and Kym are into the future of the built environment and see straw as one great ways to help build a sustainable Passiv Haus (super insulation, air tight, well ventilated living) home.  Early days but a great start into main stream building.  This property is in Redesdale, Victoria fronting Lake Eppalock near Bendigo.  There was a great team including the clients and their Passiv Haus Certified builder Stuart Lee from Craftsmen Quality Builders who helped put all of this together in under two days.
