The Second Annual Ontario Straw Bale Building Coalition Open House Tour of Straw Bale Homes and Buildings

The following OSBBC Members will be opening their doors so that anyone interested in straw bale construction can a lose up look at the beautiful homes and functional buildings we have designed and built using straw.

Most tour hosts will permit visitors to take pictures of their homes. Please ask for permission before taking pictures. We would like to post a gallery of 2004 Tour pictures. If you visit a home and take a digital picture, please consider sending it to the webmaster.
