Backing for hot water solar panels might work. helping to increase the proformance of a water evaporator to generate clean drinking water. Increasing the out put of PVC electric panels. Line a cold frame with them. Any of these ideas might work, or they might cause you problems. I have never had large mirrors to work with, just throughing out ideas.

I don't know if your site gets driving rain at all, if it does it might be worth putting a breather membrane on the outside face of your OSB (keeping things drier until you put your treated battens and cedar on). It should stop rain getting into your straw through the osb but should let it breathe.
I have to admit 7 to 9" of straw seems quite thin to split a bale into, good luck with cutting them up, I had to split bales with a bale needle for a studio I built a could of years ago. The straw seemed to get everywhere, lots of sweeping up to do!
