>  Dear worldwide strawheads.
> I just wanted to say that we've a new german so called "general" approval
> for straw as an insulation material. The main improvement is: it now allows
> to plaster directly on the straw (wasn't possible before), e.g. inside
> clay/ earth plaster outside lime plaster with hydrophobic paint. And some
> further less important changes, e.g. less restrictions for quality controls
> now (dimensions, binding, ...). We are able to use bales from nearby the
> building site without extra transportation, and by the way: for small
> residential building the manufacturer baustroh.de offers a very easy and
> inexpenisive procedure. The client just calls the manufacturer, send 2
> bales for pretest, if successful order full test. In addition to cost for
> the farmer and bale transportation from the field to site it
> currently costs 1.000€/ per house to have a fully legalised building
> material which allows the client to build extraordinary sustainable homes.
> There is no other fully legalised building material in Germany with such an
> easy and low cost certification.

> please send your text to me, that we can offer it on our website)
