The Last Straw
R E S O U R C E S
Whether you're a straw-bale newcomer or a seasoned pro, being able to find the right resources is important to successful projects.
The listings in this section of our web site come from our annual Resources Guide. The TLS Resource Guide is updated continuously throughout the year on our web site. And you can help us keep the information current. If you know of something or someone that should be listed and isn't, or if you see something that is outdated that we haven't caught yet, or have any other comments or suggestions, please let us know.
As you do your research, remember that there are as many opinions about how to build as there are builders in the world. The resources listed here should be used with a heavy dose of your own discretion, intuition, common sense and deeper inquiry!
