In November we photographed my small straw bale home from the air using a aerial drone with a video camera. This gives a unique view of the house from a perspective that is rarely seen. Note the relatively few number of solar panels on the roof. This 1.2 kilowatt pv system provides all of the electrical power for the structure. The metal roof is an ideal surface for collecting rain water for the buried cistern that supplies all of the non-potable water. The long side of the home is angled to face south for maximum solar gain. Building a small home costs less to build and less to maintain over the years.
