Hello to all fellow straw bale builders and/or dreamers
I'm a straw bale dreamer at the moment! and new to this site.
I live in Kalamata, Southern Peloponese, Greece. I'm planning to build with 
straw for all the obvious reasons, at the moment my biggest obstacle are the 
building regulations that are concerned (quite rightly) with earthquake 
'proofing' To conform to these regs I must use vast amoiunts of 
planet-destroying concrete. There may be a way round this, I'm still 
Has anyone built in Greece or faced similar obstacles? also I've come across 
'Agenda 21' does anyone know if this can be used as a legal leaver to 
persuade local planning departments to adopt a more open-minded approach to 
eco-friendly new building techniques?
Any thoughts, comments, ideas MOST welcome
