Hello Norbert,

we've built a strawbale house two years ago. Since I understood that 
moisture is one of the main issues regarding strawbale houses I'm 
interested to get more information on your monitoring system: What are 
the costs and efforts to install such a moisture monitor to an house?

Best regards,
Steffen Wallat
