Innovative Straw And Plaster Tiny Home


Welcome to a unique tiny house experience with “Pumice Tiny House”! Built from about 200 barley straw bales, a waste byproduct from the grain industry, this tiny house is plastered with a lime-based plaster reminiscent of those found on old European castles. The plaster is delivered to the bales by a pump and hand-polished for a smooth finish. With exceptional insulation value, high fire rating, and zero VOCs, it’s a perfect blend of sustainability and innovation.
