Don't build with straw, the big bad wolf will come and huff and puff
and bloooooowwwwwww your studio down=21 =3B-) Sticks aren't any good either.
I remember reading about straw bale construction in Mother Earth about
20 years ago (I was a precocious child =3B-). You get GREAT insulation, you
could probably heat the whole studio with a Bic lighter, have to figure out
how to keep the button down though.

Straw bale construction is enjoying (?) a revival among folks living as
independently as possible on the land. There are several books out there
now, check the library.

Straw bale construction is still happening! I am very interested in
building my home this way. Around here, they charge you to come build
their house to learn how. Does anyone know a better way?
Daisy and I will probably build it alone. Thank goodness she is strong.

The style home is rather like adobe, without the clay. There are 200
year old straw bale construction homes still standing today. I think it
will provide an excellent studio, and home, but I'll have to move to the
banana belt, if I tried to build it here, the big bad wolf would be the
constant NW drizzle. Sher
