whole wall performance Carol,Though this is far from my field of expertise here are a few observations that I hope will prove useful: -1) Whilst with a leaky envelop airtightness could play a part in the convection process at PH standards I would have thought that this is unlikely. 2) One thing to consider would be ensuring that a wind barrier is used on the outer face of the bale, thus preventing cold external air penetrating into the straw bale. Does the Danish report mention anything like this?

With depleting oil reserves, increasing global warming, and a variable climate, we have to rethink the way we create our built environment. While our first responsibility is to save and retrofit existing, suitable buildings, when new construction is necessary, it should be constructed of materials with the lowest embodied energy, with a passive solar design, the best possible insulation, and be created with longevity in mind.

Pictures of Straw Bale House Construction (Part 4): Shooting Lime Stucco Plaster, Installing In-Floor Radiant Heating, Making an Adobe Block Floor, Building Wall Partitions with Straw and Clay (COB)<br> Stuccoing the Interior Walls: a pure lime stucco (stabilized with cement) was shot professionally on all interior wall surfaces of our straw bale house. Ferrous sulfate, a common garden fertilizer/additive, was added to the mixture for coloring (turning the plaster a light tan instead of the original brilliant white color). - For a detailed page on lime stucco plastering including the formulas we used, click HERE.
