Bend, Oregon
7-Day Hands-On Straw Bale Workshop

Taught by Timbo Scurso & Dainella Nartker

August 25 – August 31, 2024

Join us for straw bale construction hands-on learning of skills and best practices. The classic strawbale.com workshop experience… Summer-camp-for-adults meets a good old-fashioned barn-raising!

We are Brett & Sherri! Building our own home has ALWAYS been a DREAM of Brett’s, having built homes for years as a carpenter. After a couple of years of learning and researching the idea of building a home with straw bales, I (Brett) was able to attend the straw bale workshop in Chiloquin, Oregon, last year.After my wife and I got to speak with Timbo and Dee and see that the 2024 strawbale workshop could become a part of that dream, we were ALL IN! We plan to have one of the most fun, educational, memorable, and team-building experiences with this strawbale build! We are Grateful and Excited to HOST YOU at our Bend OR Strawbale Workshop!!

Our new straw bale home is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home with central living space and an attached two-car garage. There will be a walkout basement, so we have room for guests and a deck facing the Deschutes River. We’ll be building with a post and beam infill wall system.
