Format: Paperback
Building with Straw Bales: A Practical Guide for the UK and Ireland appears in a revised, updated edition and actually is a key pick for any straw bale construction collection no matter where in the world it's located. There have been many changes to straw-bale building technology and this edition includes new construction drawings, new standards, examples of affordable housing designs, and more. From bale specifications to building regulations, most of the data can be translated and applied to any project.

Format: Paperback
Not much practical use at all. Lacks any technical detail and is of little use if you intend to actually build a house using straw.
