Straw Power

Matt Machula is hauling straw bales off farmers’ fields and onto the job site. He’s using farming waste products to insulate a house under construction near Cochrane. “We like taking on projects that are unusual and focus on high efficiency and improving the status quo of buildings,” he says. The straw bale hybrid home is a 3,800-square-foot family residence that Machula, president of Cambio Contracting, plans to move into later this year.
