We have worked with a couple clients on this idea, one which actually
came to fruition. I am not sure what our clients cost/sf was, but
ModCell's website says £250 per square meter. If I am not mistaken,
this equates to (£250 / sm / 10.8 sf / sm) £23 per square foot. At
todays exchange rate that is $45/sf. That is roughly twice as much as
what we do a hand-built wall for here in Colorado. Maybe they have a
secret on how to really make money building bale walls. I would expect
it to be less expensive than site-built walls. I do not know how much a
site-built wall costs in the UK.
I would also be curious to see their base-of wall flashing detail, or
how they treat moisture if it gets behind the render.
