Love this simple cabin living room: smaller stove on simple slab hearth, permanent bench/sofa. good for sleeping a person or two, storage underneath. Floor is perfect. Shelf over window optimizes the use of space.
Straw bale interior - Straw bales are at least 18 inches thick, making a pretty hefty wall. Hefty and warm! The insulation values are to so you can be sure your heating bill won’t be through the roof each winter.
