Dear Strawbalers,

Has anyone found link or how to get more information about the adobe for wet
climes as mentioned in message below?  I have lime/sand lime-washed render
over cast straw/clay walls and the south-west elevation, open to driving
rain and gales, is getting damaged and disintegrating.  Any ideas please?

best, Lysana
