Would you live in a house made of straw?

I enjoyed this article today on a young couple building their house out of straw - https://www.domain.com.au/advice/the-young-couple-building-their-first-home-from-straw-20170518-gw57...

 

It's a modest two bedroom house, but the build price sounds reasonable at about $250,000. I especially like the sound of using jetty timber. 

 

Anyone live in a house made from an usual material like straw?

@Isobel No I haven't designed nor built a house of straw as it's non- compliant and it would cost too much to make it compliant in Australia
Though , I Have read the "Three little pigs"
