SV: GSBN:Largest strawbale buildings?

Hi all
I have made a suggestion for an SB-wall cladded with boards on the outside, se my presentation from the SB-conference in Denmark some years ago: 
<a  target="_blank" href="http://sbi.dk/download/pdf/jma_slides_halmhuse.pdf";>http://sbi.dk/download/pdf/jma_slides_halmhuse.pdf</a>
It is Wall example 4 and Structure 3 which are relevant for protecting the plaster. 
In Denmark the fire regulations will be a problem for multistorry buildings with SB-walls, both because of the boards and because of the combustible insulation. I guess it will be likewise in other countries.

Hi Derek,
Yes, sheltering high walls is one of my major concerns, too. There is
no design as yet, only an feasibility inquiry. We are just starting
the discussion and already I've talked to them about sheltering walls
from rain, detailing for moisture, and offered my consulting
services. I'll keep you all updated as the project matures. Thanks,

In the age of global warming, it's cool to be green.
