Developing Nations

Numerous projects have been undertaken which combine the people-friendly nature of bale building with self-help housing initiatives in developing parts of the world. In Mexico, China, Mongolia, Iraq, and many other places, people have introduced straw bale building. Their goals are the same as ours: affordable housing built with local materials by people who need housing. The big difference in these cases is that a bale home is usually a bigger step up in thermal performance from the existing housing stock.

Many agencies have undertaken projects to help introduce bale building around the world. If you have an interest in joining their efforts, see the contact information below.
