Killaloe Passive Solar Straw Bale Home

This Straw Bale Passive Solar home located near the village of Killaloe, Ontario, features passive solar and wood heating systems  in combination with adequate thermal mass, and ample insulation.  The electricity for this very beautiful and comfortable home is from solar renewable sources, and domestic hot water is provided by a solar collector in the summer and by a wood-fired stove in the winter.
