Happily Ever After: A Romantic Straw Bale Home

A couple hand-builds a romantic, enduring straw bale home in a quiet mountain town. Then the story takes a surprising twist.

Emmanuelle purchased the leopard-print chair so she would have a place to sit while breastfeeding her son. “I didn’t want something that looked too Granny,” she says. “I wanted something fun.” The chair, in Emmanuelle’s lower-level studio, faces the south where it’s always sunny.
