"Years in the making and greatly anticipated, Straw Bale Building Details, was well worth the wait. The details are extensive, thoroughly and carefully described, illustrated, and explained―a tour de force. But what makes this book enormously more useful and beneficial is that those details are placed into their appropriate context, shifting wherever needed from the details to the bigger picture. This is a masterwork that belongs in the hands of anyone designing, building, or issuing permits for straw bale buildings."
― David Eisenberg, director, Development Center for Appropriate Technology, and co-author, The Straw Bale House
