Subject: Urban sb query


Hello All,

I just got this query from somebody doing a study on the use of straw 
bales in urban contexts. I've given him leads on the Ontario projects 
I've been involved with, but perhaps the rest of you can likewise 
steer him in the direction of other urban sb projects.

Chris

Dear Editor,
                   I am doing a study into the potential of straw bale 
as a construction material in medium/high density urban developments. 
Do you know of any straw bale buildings built in cities? I have found 
out about three storey load bearing structures in adelade, Australia, 
although cannot find any technical info on them. If you know of any 
existing urban projects, involving straw buildings of three or more 
storeys or terraced housing for example, I would be very grateful. 
Yours Sincerly, Ben Lloyd-Ennals.

Subject: TLS looking for straw bale "follow-up"

Hello All!

Our next issue of TLS is themed "Living With Straw." Joyce and I 
agreed that TLS spends most of its time looking at preconstruction 
and construction aspects of straw bale, but rarely do we ever follow 
up with home owners to find out about issues that have arisen since 
moving in. These issues include maintenance, decoration/finishing, 
working out the kinks in mechanical systems, composing lists of 
"should-haves" in regard to design and construction, and even dealing 
with curious onlookers and info-seekers.

It would be great if any of you could put us in touch with the people 
you know who have been living in bale houses for a while, and who 
might be interested in sharing some of their experiences. I have 
written a series of questions which could be emailed or mailed to 
them, and will be compiling the answers into an article or series of 
articles for the issue.

Please send contact names and info to me at TLSEditor@...

Thanks, and happy holidays!

Chris
