Regarding whether you should build the north wall of your house with straw bale or all cob. It depends on the local climate, which was not mentioned in the original post. Here in Minnesota, you probably would (assuming we find some sort of cure for the global warming). If you're in Colorado up in the mountains, also you'd probably want to. But if you're in Kansas probably not. If your area gets cold a lot during winter, it'd be a good idea to either use straw bale or maybe a cob outer and inner walls, with a layer of straw coated with clay slip in between. Ør other methods people are probably already typing. :D good luck! Jon
