7-Day Hands-On Straw Bale Workshop Delta 2024 – CO

September 15 - September 21


Delta, Colorado
7-Day Hands-On Straw Bale Workshop

Taught by Timbo Scurso & Dainella Nartker

September 15 – September 21, 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!

Ken and Kristin are hosting this workshop after moving to Delta in July of ‘23 from Golden, Colorado, their home for the last 34 years.

Our simple ranch-style home will feature a low-pitched shed roof facing south to the San Juan Mountains and their centerpiece, Mt. Sneffels. The 1,300 square foot floor plan will include 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and an open floor plan and kitchen, with an extension to include a mudroom and utility room. It will feature views to the North and South.

The straw bale wall system will be a modified post-and-beam infill designed around the locally available bale size. We are excited to be building an energy-efficient home with environmentally responsible materials to keep our home cool in the summer and cozy warm in the winter. AND to be 100% powered by the sun! This is our dream and maybe yours as well?!? We couldn’t be happier to be sharing this experience with you!
