Hi!
 We have purchased a design for a strawbale home... we now need to find someone to engineer it and maybe assist with the build... anyone know of someone or a company who would be available to help with this sort of project? Thank you!

Hi,

I been trying to figure out what would be best for here in western Washington regarding a home built of cob, light straw clay or if a straw bale house would be better, (and wouldn't take forever to build) so far I'm still not sure but I came across this company that builds straw bale homes here in Washington state, you may want to check it out.

I am in Cali..but family in Port Angeles. I am also interested in cob, super adobe and other Earthern like builds. I would like to be part of a project, and also build one of our own one-day .

Have you had any luck finding the resources you need?
