Hello friends,


Are there any tests out there regarding the bullet resistance of straw bale
walls? It is a concern in Pakistan, and I've received an inquiry about it
and if cement plaster would increase it. 


Our bales are 13" thick and we use earthen plasters, lime-stabilized earthen
plasters and lime plasters.
