This is the first STRAW BALE HOUSE to be built in Hamilton! The design was created to meet the Heritage Guidelines for the Beach Blvd. area. The Approvals Committee said it was the nicest design they had approved of to date! This project had to go through four different approvals: City of Hamilton Zoning, Conservation Authority Approval, Ministry of Transportation Approval as well as a hydro easement. After this four month process, getting the actual building permit was a breeze with this municipality.
The client, a talented MD who designed and built her own electrical car, is planning to slowly build it as her own General Contractor over the next few years.
