Re: GSBN:Fw: The First Strawbale house in Sri Lanka

Greetings Helen and Per,

We were very interested in your report of the first straw-bale house in
SriLanka and presume that Chris Magwood and crew in Canada are issuing an
invitation for them to attend the September conference.

Matts and I are most interested to find out details of the hand baler they
designed, and wonder if you know more about that.  If not, we can write to them
directly if you send us their e-mail address.

Thanks, and again, greetings to you both from Tucson,
Judy and Matts
