That's because Marco (Bon-Christiani) Bunocristiani is building his house
out of hay.
The Dilworth, Minnesota native has a degree in energy management, so when
it came time to build his home, he needed the most plentiful least expensive
insulation he could find.
He is covering bales of hay with stucco to keep out the weather and
Marco insists his home will be safe.
He says the straw will smolder before it burns.
However, the banks and insurance companies aren't so sure. They will not
issue a loan or a policy on the home.
Still Bunocristiani says its all worth it.
The hay is a cheap building material and it has twice the insulation value
of conventional materials.
