Yes, I forgot about Dodson, and didn¹t know he had an ID license. Certainly
an advantage. Dodson and I talked recently about Appendix S.

Dodson Harper, the other Principal here at REG is licensed in Idaho, and we
are very familiar with straw bale construction issues. Our schedule is
pretty full, but possibly we can help. Feel free to forward my contact info
(see below).

Thanks,

August
