Hahaha ! 
Thank you Martin for this really tiny tiny house !
Yes I meant houses build with star blocs, why hasn’t it been build more with with this technic ?
Is it an insurance made ? or certification ?

Thanks in advance for more info about the practical aspect of this technic, because I can imagine it could interest many company who like to produce blocks !…

All the best

So I included the attached photo of a teeny-tiny little tiny house using Stak Blocks. Tiny enough to sit on a table at a trade show (!).

Of course there is also lots o’ structural testing still necessary. I think structural straw bale walls (especially shear walls) have yet to be fully understood and optimized. Plus there are so many assembly variations.
