Former accountant Carol Atkinson has built the UK’s first straw-bale holiday home in East Yorkshire, and is now leading courses on how to build with it.

She says: “Straw bales provide a high level of insulation and have very low embodied energy, locking away carbon for the life of the building. When plastered on both sides, straw-bale walls are fireproof, verminproof and airtight.” The three-day course includes presentations and hands-on building with straw bales.
