Over the past 10 years, Natural Home has featured homes made of straw bale, rammed earth and clay—from tiny, handmade cottages to exquisite, expensive mansions. We've introduced readers to new building methods, such as structural insulated panels, and innovations including geothermal heating and cooling systems. These are just a few of our favorite houses and gardens—and yours.
