Dear SB people!

I'm writing to you just to let you know about one of my plans for this year
and asking for your advice. This summer I would like to build a home for our
family. I have a design plan with approval from local authoroties and big
bales are ready to use, we have some amount of trusses, also clay+sand, lime
and roof shindles. 

But still I feel the need for consultation about construction details:
foundation, "bearing" posts, ceiling, etc. So far I have built already some
SB houses, also in our climate, and I have basic knowledge of building
principles. But the big (two-storage) load bearing construction seems more
complicated than my previous experiences can afford. 

So I would like to invite you to share knowledge about details in big bale
construction. I have added also some views of the house as it is right now
(house is a 12m wide and 20m long).

Any feedback and advice is warmly appreciated,
Thank you!

Sven Aluste
