Strohpolis!

Strohpolis, meaning straw house, is the first major building and first straw bale building that Sieben Linden built. It is the building that convinced the Local Authorities to allow straw bale buildings. It is what makes Sieben Linden such a special place for me; the magical, brilliant straw bale buildings and talented straw bale builders!
