Today we drove through Lake County on our way to a house project and witnessed the devastation first hand. It’s hard to look out on the vast mountain-scape and see that beautiful forest burnt as far as the eye can see. My heart goes out to all those families who lost their homes in that fast moving, relentless fire, and to those who now have to put their lives back together. We would like to offer architectural house plans to anyone who lost a home in the fire, free of charge. 

These are homes constructed of strawbale covered with plaster, and have excellent fire and seismic resistance, besides being energy efficient. The plans were designed to meet the California Building Code and the Wildland Urban Interface fire regulations. Please take a look at the plans on our website ( and let us know if we can help you. Feel free to contact us with any questions
