 Do you have some information over the amount of breathing of SB buildings?. There a lots of test report on the internet
over SB building, but i couldn't find any over breathing capability of Straw Bale + stucco.

Hi Tjibbe,
I am not quite sure what you mean by amount of breathing, I guess you mean the fact that strawbale walls with earth/lime
render allow a certain amount of vapour permeability, if this is so I'm unaware of any information about this, but will
make some enquiries for you.
For the SBBA(wise)
