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

Since TLS is a partner in the Registry, and since one purpose of the 
Registry is  for researching/disseminating info on the performance 
etc of existing buildings, I see no reason why you shouldn't contact 
some of the registered homes.

Shoot me the specs of a qualifying building (ie, "4+ years old, load 
bearing, clay plaster, north america" yadda yadda) and I'll extract 
the candidates who are open to such contact.
