Re: GSBN: Straw Bale in India?
Just clearing out my archives and I know that I did not answer this one
about India. I met a Dr. Job Ebenezer, a fine Indian gentleman now
residing in Chicago. I met Job at Catalyst 97 in Canberra. Job sent me
some great photos of Indian straw houses as well as their tilt-up straw
Job can be contacted at The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America:
8765 West Higgins Road
Chicago IL 60631 (Beats me how we colonials are meant to know what IL
stands for Illinois I suppose)
Job's phone # 773 380 2708
I hope that he is still there as I would love to publish these photos on
our web site someday. In 'The Hindu' Wednesday February 7 1996 there is
an article about A Low Cost House Built With Paddy Straw, it's a beauty!
Built in a place called Tiruchi at the Centre for Appropriate
Technology of Bishgop Herber College of Tiruchi in collaboration with
the Herber Au Sable Institute of Michigin USA.
So if I can get this thing scanned I will post anyone a copy or better
still post it on our web site.
Sorry it took me so long to answer this one.
