Hi. To all of those for the warm welcoming to the forum and site.Thankyou.

I will try to keep you all informed about the project of Straw Bale Building.
Www.strawworks.co.uk is headed by Barbara Jones, who is probably the UKs leading expert.

If anyone needs any technical advice on Straw Bale Building the website has lots of information. There is also 200 hrs of online learning about straw bale building on the low impact website by Barbara Jones for 20. She also has a very good book about Straw Bale Building.

Hope this helps anyone interested in Straw Bale Building.
I am hopefully off to Australia in 2007 to learn about Hemp Bale Building and how , if you have land, you can grow Hemp for you to build your own house !
Mistress Rose

Interesting, but is it a bit less relevant for the UK where growing hemp is considered 'dangerous' to the extent the fibre producers have to have a licence? Have fun in Aus. Very Happy
