It was wonderful to stay with Jenny and Paul and to talk all things strawbale. And a pleasure to experience the comfort of a well insulated place during the winter months. I am now further inspired to build my own strawbale home.

Jenny and Paul are hospitable hosts. Their home was a great home away from home where you are able to sit back and relax and enjoy great conversations. Highly recommended and it was only a short drive to Ballarat and close to shops and restaurants.
