Video: Straw bales as home insulation

Watch this video of straw bales being delivered to our site in Garndiffaith. Some of the 12-new homes being built on our behalf by ENGIE, our contractor, are using timber frames filled with straw bales.

The 12 homes will be for residents aged under 35. The project, which is being funded by £1.48m from the Welsh Government’s Innovative Housing Programme, is our response to the increasing challenges faced by young people who are unable to access affordable housing.

The homes will be completed next year.
