Re: GSBN:SB codes resource


The TLS site and the resource list are both excellent places. This
leads me to the following suggestion. How about adding a summary, per
country of houses presently registerred on The strawbale registry
adding a few relavant statistics while saying this I ask you all to
please add any houses you have been involved with either by entering
the information yourself of prompting either the builder owner to do
so. I will do so myself as I see only one Dutch SB house registerred
whilst there are at least 30 most probably even more, I am now getting
into the happy fase that I learn about projects after they have been

Rene, Marty and GSBN members,

The Last Straw journal published Marty's list of information about
codes worldwide in TLS issue #54/ and this will be included on the next
update of the resource guide TLS web site www.thelaststraw.org and in
format sometime this summer.

We can easily update the web site chart whenever there is new
information to
post and then publish it periodically in TLS. I would be willing to
this information a full page on the TLS web site with links to other
that pertain to codes, when appropriate.

Would be good to have all the information in one central location and

Dear members and specifically Martin Hammer,

Based on the question coming form Lithuania. It might be a good idea
set up a net resource for all specific SB building codes and or
procedures in the various countries.

Basically what I am thinking of is a list of countries with further
subdivisions where necessary for counties etc. This should help a
deal in making clear what the official status is regarding the
acceptance of straw bale building.

Besides the code or url to the code it should contain a description of
the status of the code the governing body when accepted etc. If at all
possible links to official sites should be given.

I am not sure where to place the resource yet. If needed I could
support it on www.strobouw.nl given a completely separate page.

Kind regards
Rene Dalmeijer
