Dear Alison,
I have done couple of extension of a stone buildings. You have to pay atention to details and joints. In between stones and straw I usually put a vertical vapour barrier, some wood (like a base plate) and the strawbales. You have to compress the bales very well and study the joint. Every situation needs a different joint. I suggest you to ask an expert near you to come and advice you on details in order to avoid damages or problems.
Best wishes

One of my many concerns is movement of the straw walls and the roof as this will obviously be joined to the main house,thoughts.
