House of the week: 977 Meadow Wood Road

This home was built to be eco-friendly, sustainable and shared. Just outside of Toronto in Mississauga you’ll find this truly unique living space. 977 meadow wood road mississauga

Probably one of the more unique characteristics of this home is the fact that it was built using straw bale for walls and insulation.

The apocalypse. This home is stacked with eco-desirable features such as straw bale walls and a solar panel roof. The listing also boasts this home as “climate resilient”, so I assume you’d be fine in one of those crazy power outages we had a few years ago.  977 meadow wood road mississauga
