STRAWBALE

Down a bumpy, unassuming dirt road you will find this cozy, southwestern style straw bale house. With simple details like stained concrete floors, open post & beam porches, as well as custom designed metal porch railing, this ultra efficient house fits perfectly into its habitat. Formerly part of the Wimberly Rainbow Ranch, this home is Texan through & through with details such as it’s beautifully crafted cedar window sills and the hand-lathed lime plaster, by Austin’s own Earthbound Builders, cladding it’s walls. The straw bale style construction gives a practical and beautiful depth to each window sill, and the Olympic swimmer owner gives her own touches with blue pool tiles and her handmade stained glass which make fun & stark statements throughout the house.
