Hi Bill,

  thanks for your help. I need names of firms who would insure the
house of this friend, so he could receive the mortgage. Perhaps a
foreign firm would insure the house, as we can't find in Spain one,
who would do that in this moment.
  Thanks again, Maren

Of 79 reported as loadbearing structures in the SB Registry, here are
the ones who also reported their insurance companies.  Most are US, a
couple are Canadian.  I've just included a bare minimum of data for
privacy reasons; if you need more specifics about some, just ask and
I'll tell you if I can give it out.

I tend to doubt that you'd be able to get a US company to insure in
Spain unless they're already insuring homes in Spain.  But perhaps
this short list might help to convince a Spanish insurer that
insuring a loadbearing strawbale home is not unheard of.
