Design Forward LLC is proud to have served the Southern California
area designing straw bale homes for over 15 years. However, we have
moved on to other business ventures and have closed the business as
of January 2017. We will not taking any new projects or responding
to phone and email requests. This website will be left up as an archive
of data for straw bale and design. You may find that some of the links
are broken or out of date, but we will not be updating this site any
longer. Thank you!
This small loft is located in a cozy family room with
a high ceiling. The loft will both enlarge the usable
space and create an additional sleeping area for guests.
The main construction is welded steel with oversized wood
posts and beams. All of the metal details were customized
to work with the design - no standard pieces were used.
The home was lost to the October 2003 San Diego wild fires.
The project was not completed.
