This home and studio in the Como neighborhood of Minneapolis is the only place in the Twin Cities where you can see straw bale construction. With design help from a professor of Architecture at the University of Minnesota a straw bale construction was built about 5 years ago.
At his site you can also see a 600 W solar PV system which is powering a closed loop solar thermal heating system to provide space heating.
You can also learn about high thermal mass, super insulation, and passive solar heating techniques. The site also has in-floor heat, a very efficient tank-less hot water heating system, LED lighting, dual flush toilets, and on-site composting.
