The Special Requirements of a straw bale building do not cease just because it is up and running. Clay plasters and lime renders need ongoing maintenance. This need not be done by experts, but it does need to be done properly.

An Opportunity to Continue.  Having continuing special needs may sound like a disadvantage to building with straw but of course it is also an opportunity. The need for maintenance is a chance for ongoing engagement with this natural and environmentally friendly mode of construction. It will also give opportunities for future training and inter-generational activity.
