>From my personal experience, both in load bearing than in post and beam, compression (and well done!) is essential for static, structural and insulation reasons.

Subject: [Strawbale] compressing or not
I have a fairly simple question? Is it necessarily to compress a
wall of strawbales which is supporting only itself. It is basicaly
an exterior strawbale wrapper of an existing brick wall. As far as
I can remember Kuba didn`t compress strawbales on his workshop on
ESBG in 2011. Can the strawbales sit-down after some years due to
its weight and make cracks to the exterior clay plaster? The
height of the wall is less than 3 meters.
