Meet Julia & John and their amazing self-built solar-powered straw bale home! They live in Central New York and took on the challenge of creating their own home with 1300 square feet of living space after participating in a straw bale building workshop.

While they did hire professionals for certain aspects of the build, like roofing, they DIYed a large portion of their unique home. Which is especially impressive since neither had much if any construction experience! It’s absolutely gorgeous with stucco inside and out, and it runs on solar power that’s connected to the grid. The aesthetic is just dreamy.

We were really lucky and got to do a Q&A with Julia (@ohheymissj on Instagram) about their build, which you can read below the photos!
