GSBN:Some more on SB R-values

Still more. I can't remember the details (sigh) but as I recall at
the Society for Building Science Educators meeting (Portland this
summer combined with ASES) a student group had done an in house test
of energy flow through a sb wall and surprised themselves to find it
was R-37. Perhaps someone can check their methodology...

Now if we use the big bales.... then we should get R-50-60+
