>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.

    Dear all,


      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.
