Hello Herbert,

there is no certificate, or standard for bales for building use in the UK.

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:-)
