Place: Terragnolo (Tn)

General data:
Super-elevation of a two-floor stone home, using a concrete column structure with wooden roofing.
Blueprint plan of 64 m2.
External wall surface (in straw bales) of the super-elevation: 62 m2.

The (wise) choice of the customer to build a vertical structure of the super-elevation with simple concrete columns allowed liberty in designing while using straw.
Thus, NbB was able to design the construction in wood (bead, columns corresponding to the openings, auxiliary structure to the straw plug) so that the laying of the bales was made easier. Consequently, the laying was finished by 4 people in only 2 days.
