Straw bale workshop in action

Feel the love, hug some mud

Our mission here at MudStrawLove is to help people learn about and create shelter that is congruent with their values of health and well-being for themselves and all other life on Earth.

We aim to produce natural homes and other structures that bring closer connection and harmony into the lives of everyone involved. We can help you manifest a beautiful, comfortable, environmentally friendly "green" building, or expand your knowledge base so that you know what you want to do and how to do it!

To these ends, we offer energy-efficient, material-efficient design plans and consultation; general natural building consultation; fun, informative hands-on workshops (you could be student or host); construction services such as project management and crew training; rainwater harvesting systems; and various earth-friendly interior and exterior plasters, paints and sculpture--even on your conventional home in some cases. We focus on natural, minimally processed, local, renewable, recyclable materials (like mud, straw—and love!), keeping the health of the planet and people in the forefront of our minds. Communication is one of our strong points.
