Straw Bale Building course

We were recently asked why our new communal area / training room is built using conventional building techniques. If I’m honest it’s simply because it was quick and easy, the materials were easily available and will fit in with the existing house. But Jeroen is very excited to be soon attending a Straw Bale Building course close by in Paul. We’re already knocking around some new ideas.

The course is being run by Andrew Morrison of, his first course in Europe. If you can make it, make sure you tell Andrew that you heard about it from Jeroen at Casalinho.

If you can’t make the course, sign up for his free 7 day e-course ‘7 Essential Steps to Straw Bale Success’ which you’ll find on the site.

      Hi Jewnita,

      We’re not running a straw bale course here this year. I suggest you take a look at, which is Andrew Morrison’s site where he offers a free e-course. You may also wish to keep an eye on where you’re likely to find such events in Portugal listed.

      All the best with your new build 🙂
