This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in Natural Building.

For this BB, you will build a straw bale wall in a wofati!

(source: The First Wofati Thread)

For more information, check out these permies threads:
Wofati Eco Building
The First Wofati - Allerton Abbey
Freezer Wofati

Minimum Requirements are:
  - at least 10 feet long
  - at least 8 feet tall
  - 3 layers of plaster, both sides
  - wall is “mouse tight”
  - includes at least one door or one window

To document completion of the BB, provide proof of the following:
     - materials for construction at the build site
     - partway through the bale installation
     - partway through the plaster
     - finished straw bale wall in a wofati meets the above requirements
I got this tall by not having enough crisco in my diet as a kid. This ad looks like it had plenty of shortening:
