> Hi All!
> As some of you may already know, Maren Termens and I  are finishing up a
> book about Strawbale Construction (written in Spanish).  One of our ideas
> is to include at the very beginning of the book a page of fotos whith
> Strawbale Houses that don´t look like Strawbale houses--or other
> interesting and unusual SB structures.  The Caption on this page will be
> "Which of these Buildings is Made with Straw?"; on the next page the
> answer:  all of them.
> Most of the images we have at the moment are taken off various web-pages
> and are of very low quality.  We don´t have any information about who
> built/owns or photographed most of these houses either.  So we want to know:
> -If you recognize any of the structures and would like us to include
> information about it (who, where, how, etc) in the book, send us a breif
> descrption (let us know which house by row # and pic. #--top to bottom,
> right to left)
> -If you don´t want us to include any of these pictures in the book, let us
> know.
> -If you have any high quality versions of these fotos (or others we don´t
> have) we would love to have them!
> Thanks in advance!
