Join us as Carolyn Roberts, single mom turned straw bale builder and author, shows slides and talks about her experiences building her straw bale house. You'll experience through Carolyn's eyes the agonizing joys of the owner/builder process, and the accompanying gamut of wildly fluctuating emotions. Part memoir, part construction journal, "House of Straw" will amaze and inspire you with its joys and sorrows, warmth, humor, and above all its painful honesty. In escaping the traps of her past and building her straw bale house, Carolyn Roberts found it necessary to rebuild herself. Most of all, she had to recognize and overcome her own weaknesses. Step by step, she devised the mental and spiritual techniques to do this. "A House of Straw" demonstrates that bringing your life into line with your values requires no extraordinary heroism but rather the personal growth within reach of everyone. Free
