Straw Bale House on the Prairie

Jane Koger designed her home in the Flint Hills of Kansas using a number of sustainable strategies, from building with salvaged lumber and limestone to insulating with bales of native Indiangrass.

The wheelchair-accessible living room features antiques and old barn wood for character. The woodstove is used for backup heat, fueled by hackberry and oak harvested from the fence rows.
