Senior Living Straw Bale Home in Vermont — 3 Comments

  1. Thank you and sorry about the multiple questions on that one topic. I did not mean to upset you in any way. Thanks for replying back to me.

  2. Owen hello and once again I am asking this question that creeps into my mind and many others as well. What about mold? and is it bug proof completely on the inside? I am curious to know as well as the earthbag home as well. I do not like bugs and not having to spend the extra money for pest control would also help a lot. :)

    • I just emailed you about 2 hours ago. Earthbags won’t mold because there’s nothing to support the growth of mold. Things such as paper on sheetrock and wood fibers in fiber board or particle board do support the growth of mold. Straw bales can mold if they get wet, particularly if water gets inside the bales. That’s why it’s important to design and build correctly, and use the most appropriate materials. If you’re in a rainy/humid climate such as Georgia then straw bales would not be the best choice. Earthbags would be way more durable.
