The strawbale wall is outside and strawbales are laid like brick wall. It means the mortar is cob-mix.. The cob mix is only on bale edges, and inside the joint about 5 cm (2 inch) from bale edge. It is important for preventing cold-bridge. Also use wood-sticks for more secure and for ensuring that strawbale layers (rows) are connected each order. Just hammer in 2 sticks for every bale. This hybrid-method wall is load-bearing and very strong. I have used it during the cob-workshop, because if you combine cob with bales then you get walls up quickly. I have heard that it works very well in cold climate like Canada and North Europe countries.
