Last time I toured this strawbale house at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, it was half done, and it was pretty impressive then. Now I’m back again with a tour of the finished house and there’s a new owner, Cat, to tell us about what it’s like to live in the house. Cat’s Cradle, as the house is known, provides examples of just about every method of natural building imaginable: cob, strawbale, earthen plaster, wattle and daub, cordwood walls, earthen plaster mosaics, bottle walls, lime plaster, passive solar design, and earthen floors. It’s a work of art with many artistic and aesthetic flares. As well, its passive solar design and round shape make it efficient as well as practical for its semiretired owner, Cat.
