It all sounds immensely exciting. I was staying in a tower house near Castle
Douglas a while ago, a little south of you. One day, when I have figured out how
to finance it, I'm going to buy an acre or two of Scotland, with the intention of
putting a straw house on it. From what I read, strawbales seem to inspire exciting
plans. If ever you get your scheme ...err...off the ground... I would be seriously
interested in finding out more, monitoring it's progress, maybe even coming to
help if you need volunteers.
I have, as yet, absolutely no experience of straw bale building, other than a lot of
reading and web-surfing. But I do know my way around building structures pretty
well, working in building maintenance.
I'm sure you'll get lots of people telling you why you shouldn't do this elsewhere,
so I'll try not to do that, but some aspects of your plan, as I'm sure you realise,
are going to be particularly challenging.
