GSBN:Question re R-values

When answering the question about R-values of bale walls and buildings, I
usually use a range rather than a specific number. A request has come in
asking for a specific R-value to satisfy the building codes officials who
are reviewing a project in the Northwest USA.

I'm wondering what answer you would give to this question?
