Straw as an insulation material! Sounds crazy? It's actually pretty smart! Benjamin Krick from the Passive House Institute did just that: He insulated his own house, a Passive House, with straw.

We all love summer! And warmth! But overheated buildings? Very uncomfortable!
In our climate, too, people recognize that we will need to be better prepared for summer. The Passive House Institute developed a guideline for summer comfort, including a stress testing. Both will be presented by Soraya Lopez from the Passive House Institute at the 25th International Passive House Conference.
Stay cool - that's easier said than done, especially during heat waves!
