Drew Hubbell was interviewed about the materials and the design of the Nuns’ Residence at Deer Park Monastery! Beautifully captivated, the video features the benefits of straw bale building within a community. At Hubbell and Hubbell, we constantly work to improve our green building methods, and our work with straw bale structures is rewarding for both us and our clients. Benefits include energy savings, fire-resistance, inexpensive and renewable materials, reduced pollution, reduced pressure on forests, and reduced health hazards. Hubbell & Hubbell has designed and permitted over 40 straw bale structures in San Diego County and is currently working on the first one to ever be permitted in LA County.
