Winter 2014 - Happy New Year! As the new year approches and begins, I would like to thank everyone for the last year. 2014 was Organicforms Design's most successful year to date. We completed designs in Oregon, Montana, Washington, Arizona, Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, Texas, New York, Austalia, and Saskatchewan. I am very grateful to everyone out there that has supported us. It is our great pleasure to help you all make your dreams of building and living in your own custom energy efficient straw bale home a reality. We very much look forward to 2014. And big props go out to the Morrison's at for all that they are doing to teach the world about this great building process.
