See an example of a cabin made from black locust wood and an old billboard that is around 300 sq. ft. and costs right around $100 to make. This cabin will be a great three season home or can be insulated later with straw bales to make a comfortable place to live.

    Well about the straw bale bed, it will quickly mold and start to grow mushrooms unless you prevent them from getting wet.

    The straw bales don't get wet because they are protected from the billboard. I figure if they get mice in them or have other issues then I get 8 bales of mulch for the gardens near by... Not a big deal!
