Couple Builds the Applegate Cottage on Whidbey Island

I’m a big fan of strawbale construction.

My friend and mentor in strawbale Andrew Morrison who I have covered several times over the years just shared a post on his site about a couple who completed a small strawbale home the Applegate Cottage. I wanted to make sure you saw it and have put a few photos to show you what they have done.

I would also like to encourage you to take one of his strawbale workshops if you want to follow this type of construction. I had the privilege of going to one a few years back and highly recommend it.

Here is a post about the Applegate Cottage I covered here on the Tiny House Blog. Here is also a link to the plans if you are interested in taking on a project like this yourself.

Andrew Morrison’s intro to his post below.

Andrew says: I met Paul and Sara in 2015, long before they moved into their very own Applegate Cottage, at my seven-day, hands-on workshop in La Grande, Oregon, and was immediately struck by what an awesome couple they are.

That energy didn’t waver, even when the work at hand was less than “fun.” I think I will always remember the two of them shoveling plaster for hours in the nearly 100-degree heat of eastern Oregon with smiles from ear to ear.
