I am aware of some built in area's like yours, though all of them used a straw bale wrap of some sort around at least part of the building to improve insulation. Never heard how any of them perform. I would recommend looking into "cob-bale" which is a hybrid cob-straw bale wall system using a 7+ inch thick cob inner wall and a straw bale outer wall built as a single integrated wall. Shannon C.
