Solarwise provides comprehensive design and building services for your new straw bale home. As a design/build firm we provide only one contract and are the single point of responsibility. We offer an integrative design approach which allows us to work as a team from the beginning to the end. By designing specifically for the construction method being used, we can reach our goals to make the building process efficient and enjoyable. When working with labor-intensive building materials and techniques, such as straw bales and natural plasters, it is imperative to instill a construction process that is proficient and streamlined. By doing so, labor costs can be minimized and budget accuracy can be achieved. When using alternate construction methods, design/build is the most cost-effective approach available.
