Hi, I have not built a cob or SB house, but if I did I think I would install a lot of insulation such as SB, vermiculite, perlite or.? With straw, or any organic material, moisture mitigation from precipitation and condensation should be addressed. I would also consider a few other "green" systems such as a greenhouse or solar collector oriented to the sun, in climates that might need heat I would consider a a long skinny house broadside to the sun and some sort of thermal storage (perhaps under the house), rain water collection system, composting toilet, grey water system such as "earthships" have. How about a Strawbale/cob/earthship hybird? Shody ____________________________________________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Everyone is raving about the all-new Yahoo!
