…and I’ll huff and I’ll puff…

Straw council houses are being built in Lincolnshire to cut costs and energy consumption.

The six three-bed semis will each be made of 500 bales and at £60,000 apiece will cost £20,000 less to build than a conventional house, reports the Daily Mirror.

North Kesteven County Council leader Marion Brighton explained: “It’s the first time this has been tried in the UK. The properties will look like conventional council houses except the outer walls will be whitewashed rather than red brick.
