The Tallest Little Straw Bale in Texas: An Eco-Friendly House With an Organic Atmosphere

A couple of empty nesters throw caution to the wind by building a three-story straw bale house on the banks of Lake Travis.

The home embodies the powerful positive flow of energy plus a sense of the sacred. The Buddha icon on the window sill was purchased at Marco Polo’s Attic in Austin (512-236-1320), and the hand-carved table is from Indonesia.
