Wood is used for protection and support (floor slab, roof), structural integrity (ring beam) as well as for additional construction. In the practical workshop sample walls of a demo-building with small bales as well as a single-family house in big-bale-technique are built load bearing and plastered.

2017-10-ilz-wrappingModule 4: Wrapping – external Straw Bale Insulation

In „wrapping“ buildings are all around the outside covered with straw bales. Decisive for the success of the thermal renovation are the appropriate fixing to the walls and the gap-free, windproof execution.
In the practical workshops, 2 single-family houses with straw bales are wrapped and plastered, for fixation we assemble a CUT hybrid construction.
