Hi folks, I am thrilled to see how Patti's research continues to grow in exponential ways.

Perhaps someone in Florida or ?? can be a great test area for Patti in a warm humid climate.

Blessings to all.

Seeking a site for a small hyper-wattle test building

in a warm, humid climate. We would be pleased to provide infill walls replacing temporary wood or tarp siding under an existing roof for an aid-type building (orphanage house, shelter, latrine).

(Hyper wattle dried well in NY, but the next step is to prove it's longevity in a humid climate.) For high termite regions like Haiti, the straw included should only be insect resistant vetiver grass.


Check out our new Youtube video about Hyper-wattle construction.

Or better yet, if you're in the Albuquerque area, come by to see this light clay tube structure yourself.
Open-house July 15, 1- 8 pm: 2909 La Camila Road NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111

Nice system. Coincidentally, I was reviewing the $300 house site last night.

Have you reviewed Strawjet, <http://www.strawjet.com/>? Their straw cables are compressed, so I don't know how well they would absorb clay slip.

Also, you may find this document to be of general interest as regards straw-clay construction:
