Straw Wall is also an old building method made into new with some added science. The panels are made of rice straw and hulls that are highly compressed with a custom-designed machine. Steel mesh (made of 100% recycled steel) is layered on either side of the panel keep the straw compressed. The straw is a natural insulator, so no additional insulation is needed for construction, and the panels can be covered in plaster, sheet rock or siding.
