hi...

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 .

Thanks
Trev

Hi Maurice,

I'm writing a fundraising letter to send to the California Rice Commission
and wheat/grain associations across the USA and Canada to help cover the
CD-Rom project's upfront costs. May I please use your "What a resource this
will be!" quote in the letter?

Joyce
