Who says hay is just for horses?

PALESTINE, Texas (AP) - September 11, 2008

Nick Moser is building a hay straw and adobe home in East Texas.

He says the hay is not only locally grown, it's great a insulator, too.

His walls are two-feet thick and even his roof will be green.

Moser tells the (Palestine) Hearld-Press newspaper his home will be capped with soil and growing plants.

He says the living roof will add insulation and help prevent water runoff.
