Earth Walls: Cob and Straw Bale Construction in Wisconsin
I'm thinking about using the frame of my party tent to build a greenhouse. I want to use straw bales as the side walls. I want to use cob or earthen plaster over those walls. On the top of the greenhouse I'll use insulated plastic. In the ends I want to add antic wooden doors. I also want to add end walls that are cob and wine bottles. Inside the greenhouse I want to add a rocket fire stove, with pipes running under the raised beds. That way I can heat the greenhouse. The only issue will be water. I just need time to build it, and the OK from Juergen. It would be a 40m² greenhouse.
