To counter-balance my negative comments on strawbale domes, I want to provide a few links to some interesting and encouraging approaches to building with strawbale.  In addition to the well-publicized and carefully refined building methods that have been developed over the last twenty years of the strawbale building revival, new ideas and techniques are always popping up.  Some of them make more sense to me than others.  I am intrigued with many of the panelizing systems for strawbales (and depressed by the obvious flaws in a few of them).  If this interests you, take a look at the links below, one of which I included yesterday.  John Glassford is the only person I have heard of experimenting with tilt-up interior strawbale walls (150mm thick), as well as other panel ideas.  Chris Magwood has a modular panel wall system that I find very exciting and promising.  Both these systems apply the plaster/render with the wall in horizontal position, which is an incredible help to quick and effective plastering.

Here are a couple more prefab options:



Prefab bale walls are my favourite thing to talk about... any thoughts 
or questions on this system I'd be glad to address!
