About this Speaker

Deirdre McGahern is a carpenter, designer and straw bale builder. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Art from Mount Allison University and a Construction Carpentry Techniques Certificate from Algonquin College. In 2004, Deirdre started Straworks, a straw bale building company based in Peterborough, Ontario, that specializes in designing and building one-of-a-kind, super-insulated homes that are made from natural and non-toxic materials. Sixteen years and 40 projects later, Deirdre still loves her job - mostly thanks to the people she works for and to the Sol and Miles - two amazing brothers - that work for her today. We take pride in our work and have fun doing it because when built properly, straw works.
