    According to B4UBuild.com, which sells books on the subject of cost estimating, the average cost-per-square-foot to build a home on site is between $95 and $150.

    Depending on where you plan to build, the price of a straw bale ranges from $1.00 to $3.00 versus the average cost of wood, which can range from $4.50 to $5.50. A basic two thousand square foot house requires about three hundred three-wire (standard) bales of straw, average cost of which would be $1000. Straw bales are not only more inexpensive than wood but offer many other positive features including energy efficiency and simplicity to build any type of structure.
