have there been tests to rate a strawbale house ( with stucco) with regards
to it's soundproofing? I can get STC ratings for brick homes, but not straw.
I would appreciate knowing if it is on par with Brick homes.

The soundproofing is directly related to mass. What are the average weights
and dimensions  for bales with stucco. I can figure out a per sqr/ft weight
and compare .
