Strawbale "Truth Window"

This is what is commonly referred to as a “Truth Window” for homes that have been insulated using strawbale insulation. Most every strawbale built home has one somewhere within the home. People put them in different places, sometimes in a more public view as in the living room while other times, such as in our house, in the office just outside the kitchen. For a better explanation on the Truth Window in this house, click on the link above.  For further information on strawbale homes, click on

When you combine the insulating attributes of strawbale to the energy saving performance of a masonry heater, you have an unbeatable combo for energy efficient heating. Today, December 31, 2017 at 3:45 pm it was 26 deg F outside on the deck, while inside the house, with only the heating from the masonry heater, it was 65 deg F.
