I've been helping a musician build a strawbale recording studio (the 'Strawdio'). It 
is a simple, one storey, load bearing structure - four walls and, soon, a green 

He has been wondering about the possibility of leaving the inside surface of the 
bales bare. This would be accoustically superior to a rendered or plastered 
surface, and would be ideal for it's intended use. But I wonder if anyone would 
like to comment about the implications of doing this - structurally, thermally, or in 
any other way?

He's been keeping a journal about the build; you can see it here:
