Ah, Lovely; a juicy discussion!

1) Mr. Bane; Thank you for your clarifications, very appreciated, and good
luck on your factory. And none-the-least: Can you supply a
http://www.dragongpb.com/ENG.html for the ESBG 2011!!!!  [I need one badly
for my house ;o) ]

2) Peter van Bale(n): Eh...what can I say? "Touche"?  As mentioned I'm going
on "due to my non-scientific gut feeling", an yes it's a very valid point
that I ought to look into the difference by using drywall. I'd appreciate if
you could mail me the other methods you refer to?
And to your direct question; No, I've never used a moisture sensors; never
could afford them, and apart from being a paid worker on SB sites, then the
only residential building I'm working on is my own.

3) Herbert: Very good information. Are you able to forward me the German
text about the Czech made OSB boards? Their own site (
http://en.kronospan.cz/osb-superfinish-eco.html )  claims there's no
formaldehyde, however you're referring to " Kronotec", perhaps different
And about Austria having enough wood: In such case, would you mind telling
them not to keep importing the lumber from my surrounding forests here in
Moravia? :oP

4) Paul: Nice blog, good luck with it. I don't want to be a spoil-sport, but
I generally find there's more to gain by creating synergy. I left the board
of Natural Building Network this summer and as such can't speak for them,
however I think they would appreciate another European board member, or
simply volunteer. They already have a well build site with loads of daily
hits, however lack the time to maintain it. There's also a .ning site which
I started as a bonus for the paying NBN members (you get access when you pay
membership), which is a platform much like what you describe you're creating
now. All in all, I'd like to recommend all of you who have wider interest
than simply straw bale building to boost the resource of Natural Building
Network. www.nbnetwork.com

5) Derelict: Lovely to see we agree!
