This auction is for a brochure/enrollment form for a 7-day Straw Bale Home Design and Construction workshop run by Sol Design, Ltd.

This 7-day workshop is appropriate for professionals in the building industry (to broaden their knowledge or those who would like to get involved in the straw bale industry) as well as people interested in building their own home.

Plaster application
Plus many more details which can be addressed during an intensive 7-day workshop
