I have forwarded your email to a couple of strawbale listserves so that you
will get some input from people in the sb community.  They will reply
directly to you.

I've just found this list and have had an informative few days, reading back
through the archives. There is obviously a wealth of knowledge and
experience on the list and I'd be a fool not to take advantage of it, so
here I am.
It appears that at least 1 or 2 of you have built a round structure. This is
of huge interest to me as there's really not much information out there on
anything other than square or rectangular. I've found Rob Roy's books
wonderfully informative as to structure (round) but was underwhelmed by the
medium (cordwood). So I was thinking it might be possible to take some of
his ideas (floating slab, "wagon wheel" rafter system, living roof) and
modify it slightly to work with straw bale (far more attractive, IMHO). I
would be delighted to hear from any of you who have input. For what it's
worth, I'm thinking of a "very" small house, approx 20' inside diameter,
single storey, and will be building either on Northern Vancouver Island or
in the Maritimes. Either way, it'll be a wet climate.
Thank you in advance,
