CASBA conducted it's first official Straw Home Tour in May 2013, showcasing 7 homes in one day!
During the Sierra Straw Home Tour straw home owners in Western Nevada County opened their doors for us to see and experience their creative and efficient homes built using this sustainable, natural material.
See the homes that participated in the Tour!
Thanks to our local merchants tickets were available at:
Son’s Development & Green Building Materials

Proceeds supported the important work and testing needed to include straw building in the International Building Code.
CASBA would love to sponsor additional Tours. If you are interested in organizing one your your area please contact us.
