What about the PAKSBAB system? It's load-bearing, single story,
simple/low-cost, and appropriate for Seismic Design Category D (passed
rigorous seismic trials).
The experimental report and executive summary are available on the BuildWell
Feel free to contact me for more info.

Subject: [GSBN] Zone D Load Bearing
I have been contacted to possibly build nine straw bale homes in Idaho. They
are on a tight budget and I would like to build these as load bearing single
story homes. Any thoughts out there on Zone D seismic and being able to do
this. I have done load bearing in Zone C but not D.
Thanks for your valuable thoughts,
