Hi group, First, some news: Abrazo House, our cob/straw bale hybrid house and study centre here in N Spain is growing - we are just about to start on the second story, the straw bales should arrive on or around August 14th, and we hope to get the house roofed over by the middle of September. We've still got room for a couple of volunteers to help at this busy time - anybody looking for a short-notice volunteering opportunity should check out our website, http://www.abrazohouse.org, and read the conditions at http://www.abrazohouse.org/?p=157. Second, a question: About adding wood shavings to cob as a type of aggregate in place of some of the sand. Anybody tried this? I'm thinking it could improve the insulation value and lessen the weight without reducing strength too much... but maybe that depends on getting a good bond between the clay and the wood shavings?
