The first thing you notice in a strawbale home is the sound level, or lack of one. The acoustics make it very comfortable to be inside. Exterior noise is blocked as well. This very quality also makes a strawbale home cozy. When you are inside, you feel wrapped up and cuddled, no matter how large the space is. Earthen plaster adds to the sense of coziness. You can’t beat the warmth of natural building material.
