Registry -- For discussion of the rewrite of the Straw Bale Building Registry


About Registry
English (USA)

We are in the process of rewriting and expanding the scope of the International Straw Bale Building Registry.

Plans are to:
a) upgrade the Registry to current software (Bill & Robert Christensen, in progress)
b) refine the questions asked about straw bale buildings
c) expand the scope to include other forms of natural/sustainable building (changing the name to "Sustainable Building Registry)
d) allow the site to be translated into non-English languages

The primary purpose of this list is to announce milestones in the process (for instance, "the new version is ready to accept listings").

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Registry Archives.
