Beautiful, small, strawbale building for sale…ex Grand Designs Live Exhibition

FOR SALE

Small, versatile, strawbale building

This building is suitable as a garden building, an office, a guest room, a teenage crash pad, a studio. It can be used all year round as it’s made of straw and is therefore highly insulated and will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

The building is 4.2m long x 3.2m wide and 3.2m high. At present it is unfinished. It can be bought in this state (see pictures attached) for £17,500. This price includes extra clay for finishing off the internal plaster, French doors with all the door furniture, 4 x double sockets and beautiful Douglas fir for skirting boards. Delivery is extra to the price.

If you’d prefer the building to be finished, Straw Works could do that for you by doing the work mentioned above + foundations, a top coat of plaster outside and sedum for the roof. The finished price would be £24,500 + delivery.

This building was transported from the Grand Designs Live exhibition in London on a low loader to Suffolk where it is residing temporarily. This is the first time a strawbale building has travelled this way! See http://www.strawworks.co.uk/

If you are interested in knowing more about this building please contact Eileen at strawworks@gmail.com
