I would like to know about strawbale construction. Would this building
method work in a tropical climate of monsoons, and 115* Summers, hot,
dusty, dry winds ...eg.areas of India like New Delhi ? What would it cost
to build a house for a family of 8-10 ? How long would construction take ?
Do you do projects in India ? My family has land in India, which we are
contemplating turning into a center for ecological economics and
sustainable living projects. We are now prospecting the possibilities, and
a serious response from you would be most welcome.
Thank you,
Premilla Hobbs
