Welcome to Strawtegic Concepts, professional straw bale builders and eco-building designers of Perth and country Western Australia.  We will help you transform your ideas from imagination to reality.

Natural building with straw bales is one of the most environmentally-friendly and sustainable building methods in the world and is rapidly gaining popularity for all the right reasons.  Along with it’s many other good qualities straw bale homes look great, are very durable, provide great thermal and sound insulation, are affordable and practical for owner-builders, and also have a great feel or “energy” about them.

We build and/or spray render straw bale walls for builders, architects, owner builders, in fact anybody who needs professionally-built straw bale walls.

Spray Render

The key to professional-quality straw bale building is in the application of the render coats.  We recommend and use our purpose-built spray render pump to ensure that the consistency and quality of the render is maintained throughout the build.

The speed at which our spray render pump applies the surface finish is incredible. (as you can see in our YouTube video below)  The final coat is then smoothed off to achieve your desired finishing effect.

By using the spray render pump, not only can we give the walls a professional finish, but the amount of time required to build the walls is also dramatically reduced.  Where traditional hand rendering would take weeks to complete, our expertise at spray rendering now reduces this time to a matter of days.

Straw Bale Building Courses

We also run regular hands-on straw bale building workshops to teach everyone how to build straw bale walls like an expert.  The best way to learn is by doing.  During his workshops Dave will teach you everything you need to know about straw bale building from the ground up!  See the Training pages for more information.
