Since the late eighteen hundreds straw bale homes have been known. Due to their use of renewable resources and high energy efficiency they have been revitalized recently. Special arrangements for electrical and plumbing must be made during construction due to their unique design. The installation of electrical boxes is done in a unique way.


1. The electrical box is attached to the end of the long wood stake with the screws.

2. Decide the location where you want to install the electrical box and clear the area. The size and depth of the hole should be according the size of the electrical box.

3. The stake is pushed into the hole until the front edges of the box rest about one inch from the bail. This is done so that some space is left to apply the plaster after you finish the wall surface.

4. The electrical wire is inserted into the box with the holes provided.
