We are hosting a straw bale eco home open house!

On Saturday October 3rd and Sunday October 4th the public is invited to tour an amazing eco-home that was renovated by the Fourth Pig. This open house is part of Ontario Sustainable Energy Association's  Green Energy Doors Open (on Saturday) and the Ontario Natural Building Association's Natural Building Tour (on Sunday). The house is located at 1033 North Took Lake Road, Baysville, Ontario.

We converted this leaky and poorly insulated '60s home in Lake of Bays, Muskoka, to a quiet, comfortable year-round family haven through a combination of straw bale wrap, dense pack cellulose, an additional exterior wall and straw bale insulated addition.
