Hi Folks,

I recently received a request from some students in Denmark to distribute a survey mostly regarding indoor climate in straw bale and straw clay homes.  They have a deadline of December 15th.  Please help them out if you can.

Internet survey around the globe (staw buildings) - Please give a hand
to distribute it

Dear Sustainable Sources,

We are Rasmus and Laurynas both students at the Technical University
of Denmark (DTU) and currently finishing a master program in
Architectural Engineering in energy efficiency study line. The master
thesis is about strawbale and light straw/clay houses.
The study has to do with monitoring 3 houses, document the differences
and similarities concerning indoor climate and energy consumption.
The study case - light straw and clay house in Crete:

The second part - where your help will be much in need - is to release
a questionnaire around the globe to owners of such houses and identify
common solutions in optimizing the indoor climate (concerning the
climate zones and such factors).
The idea is to create guidelines for people not to repeat the same
mistakes, where problems could be avoided in the early stages of the
construction. For this survey we are going to need as many house
owners (of strawbale or light straw/clay houses) as possible.

/The deadline for filling in the survey is the 15th of December./

In this point I would like to ask you, if you could help with the
distribution of the questionnaire? You could share the link directly
to the house owners or maybe post it as a thread in your webpage.

Here is the link to the questionnaire, it seems rather large but it
can be answered as a short version as well.


Any help will be useful and appreciated.

Afterwards, the guidelines will be used as open source, why not on
your webpage..

Thank you in advance,
Friendly greetings.
