The Straw Bale House is a masterpiece of ingenuity. It consists of 5 bedrooms - each with a king size bed or 2 single beds, and 3 bathrooms. The Straw Bale House sleeps 11. Welcome to the Straw Bale House! The passive solar design of this magnificent house and the half metre thick walls made of straw ensure warmth in winter and cool in summer. 80% recycled materials add beauty and character of a unique design. Timbers from an old jetty on the Parramatta River, the luggage rack from a 1927 Plymouth, 7 metre bush poles, rusted corrugated iron, doors and windows from the Queen Victoria Hospital are only some of the creative materials used in the construction of this house. Filled with handcrafted furniture and fittings, and rustic treasures collected from 6 years of active auction hunting you will find every corner brings a new surprise. The house is comprised of 2 wings – a living wing and a sleeping wing. Perfect for those who want to talk by the open fire into the wee hours while others are ready for cuddling down to sleep. The co joining tower is a picture gallery of enchanting, old, leadlight windows. Softly shaped rendered walls are accentuated by the contrast of triangular windows, and angles and shapes throughout the house. (Come and see our “Truth Window” which displays our straw walls!) Numerous and varied areas throughout the house encourage a wide range of activities to maximise the enjoyment of your stay in the world famous Blue Mountains. This house will sleep up to 11 people. Available for events, meetings, or production on Monday-Thursday. Please inquire!
