Cruck House

This is a scheme demonstrating the use of a simple bales-over-ribs structural system to produce a straw bale house requiring only rudimentary carpentry skills to erect.

At 720 square feet (including the bale walls), with beds for a minimum of four people and generous storage space (including a habitable attic) this is a design I'd love to see realized.
