I'm very interested in passive solar design (it just makes so much sense!), and want to build a straw bale house someday. We're still a long way from building, but I want to learn as much as possible before we even start planning in order to mitigate design mistakes. Could anyone recommend any good books or resources that would be helpful for a beginner who really wants to learn? Should I be reading any architectural design textbooks or something like that? I've read The Resilient Farm and Homestead and really enjoyed it, but it doesn't go as in-depth as I would like. Thank you very much in advance! I appreciate your help!
