Straw bale plastering

IMG_5715I started plastering straw bale homes more than 10 years ago. At the time, most bale homes in Ontario were plastered with cement-lime, whereas now earth and lime plasters are becoming more common.

The system I would usually recommend for exterior plaster is a lime-stabilized earth base coat, with a finish coat of lime. This system has a proven track record in Ontario, Vermont, elsewhere in North America and Europe. A variety of earth and lime plasters are possible for inside your home.

I will work with you to select the best plasters for your straw bale home, and help you get it done whether you want to be involved, or just hand it off to a professional crew.
