Building Sandhill Crane Cottage

Our Straw Bale Cottage


As you can see, our cottage is a straw bale building. Not only is it cool in the summer, but the straw insulates the interior from the cold in the winter. This is a very eco-friendly structure, even the floor is rammed-earth. We are very excited for you to visit with us and experience the calm solitude of the Cottage! 

The Frame & Roof


The cottage is built with logs (called a vega, pronounced vee-gah) collected from the nearby Chiricahua Mountains. They are stood, and the roof is added to them. Then the straw bales are placed around the footer and stacked like bricks. Then tar paper is added over the straw as a moisture barrier. Then a layer of chicken wire and stucco is added to complete the cottage. 

The Cottage


Once the cottage is finished on the outside, the inside is also tar-papered, chicken-wired, stuccoed and the walls are painted. The Cottage is an open floor plan design. This is done intentionally in most of the straw bale homes in this area to help circulate heat in the winter and cool in the summer. We invite you to come visit us, we're just a click of the Book Now button away!
