Dear Piet,

Rob of RAMstrobouw is a good source for SB info I suggest you talk to him 
after reading some of the basic SB books. Although I must caution at the 
same time he is also very busy at the moment. Have a look at my website at 
the meantime http://hetnet.nl/~rene.dalmeijer follow the links for 
resources especially check the European SB website with a lot of valuable 
info including references to books.

A book which I can definitely recommend is the recently Published German 
Der Strohballenbau by Gernot Minke and Friedemann Mahlke. The book gives 
many technical background details and includes quite a few good details 
suitable to European conditions. The publisher is okovbuchverlag 

Allas you just missed the opportunity to take part in the just finished 
International SB conference held in Friland Denmark this would have been an 
ideal opportunity to gather a wealth of information and experience in many 
basic techniques like baling walls, base coat and finish plastering etc but 
also topics like thatching solar heating and oven building taught by 
experienced practitioners. Make sure you don't miss the next European or 
international conference. The last will most probably be held in Canada in 
2 years time.
