ECO-BUILDING – PART 12 – Electrics in a Straw Bale House

When having electrics in a straw bale home, one will need to know how to install it, as it might might be so that electricians will not necessarily have earlier experience with straw bale structures.

All of the wiring is to be hidden behind the plastered wall, or made to run in required places behind a special panel, so it is better to get it done right the first time. The panel solution also makes it easier to fix faulty wiring, if the need arises.

The wiring can also be placed to run in a tube which makes the installation easier.

I’m electrisian, and have some expirience with a strawbale houses, and i sure you. It will be not so easy to cover a wires by special boards after plastering, best solution is to use hiden wireing, or connect all wires to timber frame.

Yes, you are right.
As a matter of fact, the timberframe will be visible inside, which means that the “wooden electrical tunnels” will be fastened directly to the timberframe.
There will be a great deal of work to make these ‘tunnels’ of wood, but we see this as an aesthetic issue of decoration or design.
