Dear Herbert, 


In the Netherlands we can use any bale we want for any kind of structure. 

So three times yes to your questions. 


With kind regards,

Dear Balers in Europe 


As we have troubles with building officials (esp. in Lower Austria), who
want only certified building-balles in buildings,

even when you insulate a roof or ceiling to a roof in an existing building
(without any funding or banque-credits),

I would like to know, what the actual situation is in your country:


So I have only 3 short questions (your answer would help me very much):


1) Is it allowed to build one-family-houses with normal uncertified straw
bales in your country?


2) Is it allowed to build official buildings (e.g. museums, schools,...)
with non-certified bales?


3) Is it allowed to insulate an existing building (without an official plan)
with non-certified bales in your country?


all the best / thank you for answers:-)
