Audubon President Invites Visitors to “Straw Bale House”
Jamestown, NY — Jamestown Audubon Society president Ruth Lundin and her husband Paul have made the big decision to build their retirement home — and they’re doing in the “greenest” way possible.
From 1-3 pm on Sunday, March 18, Ruth and Paul will have an open house at their work-in-progress. Visitors will be able to learn about the resource and energy saving methods they are using, including straw bale insulation, a living roof and both passive and active solar energy.
“Building a straw bale house is truly an adventure,” Lundin observed. “We’d like to share our progress – and possibly inspire others – so we’re welcoming the community to come for a visit.”
Reservations are required by Thursday, March 15, by calling (716) 569-2345, emailing email@example.com, or using the on-line form at on Audubon’s website. After that date, call to check on available space. When you register, you will receive directions to the house.
While there is no charge, donations are appreciated.
