Our round house made of strawbales & clay
in Kassjö, Västerbotten, Sweden

Halmbalshus Norrsken

“We have built our dream house with i.a. straw & clay to create a healthy home with minimal environmental impact.”

Erik & Laura Vidje



Our self-built roundhouse of straw and clay is a well-documented project. With numerous construction courses, study visits and information online, we hope to inspire others to build with environmentally friendly materials and methods, but also to dare to make more demands on suppliers! You can read more about the design, suppliers and all highlights about the house at the link below:
