We are happy to once again to have projects we worked on participating in the Natural Homes Tour put on by the Ontario Natural Building Coalition! The self-guided tour features “straw bale, rammed earth, hempcrete and many more natural building methods, as well as alternative energy and heating systems and much more!”
If you are looking to check out Fourth Pig projects the main one is listed as “Straw Bale Home -1033 North Tooke Lake Rd , Baysville” This project was a major renovation and build. 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. See this article in the Huntsville Doppler about this home and the tour.
Also on the tour is “Multi-Unit Straw Bale House -977 Meadow Wood Rd”. The Fourth Pig did not build this home but we completed some renovations to this award winning straw bale home that is now up for sale.
