Thanks Cher. I am a big fan of sustainable building, and am working on plans for a straw bale, mud and recycled timber house. One of the building practices that worries me is that nearly all modern homes are now completely encased in plastic. The waterproofing is fantastic, but you have a house that cannot breathe! Add to that the outgassing of the plastic and the damage done to the planet - these are the reasons I chose straw bale.
