Hi from your friends at DCAT! We have worked hard with the good folks at Solar Energy International to bring together this workshop on natural building, straw bale construction and building science. Having people like John Straube, Jeff Ruppert and Stephen Kanipe in the same workshop is a rare treat, giving us the chance to explore both the building science, engineering, and building codes sides of the discussion. All are exemplary in their fields, and we are lucky to have them, and of course DCAT will provide its uniique views and experience as well. We hope you will consider joining us! We dug pretty deep into our email address books, so if this message gets crossposted or otherwise is sent to someplace unwanted, of course we will remove you. Just let us know! Best wishes, David Eisenberg and Tony Novelli _____________________________________________ In case you haven't heard about this, there is a great workshop planned June 21st -25th in beautiful Carbondale, Colorado.
