Our Current Project:
Ageing in Place Sustainably!
A How-To for Senior Citizens
Port Angeles, Washington: We're building a model post and beam strawbale home with solar pv grid-tie system to be an educational example for all who are interested.
March 2016 will see the beginning of a new green home built adjacent to Peabody Creek Ravine which is city owned land and is part of a greenbelt that meanders through a renewing historic city on the Salish Sea.
IronStraw Group will once again build a model strawbale house which will serve to teach a community. With a number of growing partnerships, our non-profit will educate through hands-on learning opportunities. More details about how to join in this exciting project and be in partnership with a growing community please go to our Ageing in Place Sustainably page.
As in past builds, we will bridge with local schools, Native Americans, design professionals, builders, city departments, senior citizens and the community at large as we construct a home that will answer these questions:
- How do we build affordably?
- How do we build green?
- How do we build so that we are not forced to leave our homes before we want?
- How do our buildings support us to live in them as affordably as possible?
- How do we build a home we can live in the rest of our lives?
If you would like to be involved please contact us using the info at the bottom of the page.
We will be having LOTS of workshops so check out our workshop page.
