Re: vaulted straw bale house

I still think that some form of pre-treatment of bales when you know they will be subjected to moisture might help. E.g. Dip them in a mix of brine and copper

Re: vaulted straw bale house

My 2 cents: Not all parts of a strawbale house *have* to be strawbale. Any strawbale is good, but depending on where you want to put it, more is not always

Re: Quick and dirty cold room

Re: Quick and dirty cold room

Ok, how (and why) do you bale spruce needles. Our native white spruce have needles 1/2" to 3/4" long. And they are smooth and straight. I think I would have

Re: Quick and dirty cold room

Sherwood, you should be good with the bales.  Rubble trench foundation to grade, cement blocks on that and the voids filled with gravel, foam insulation on

Re: Quick and dirty cold room

I'm building a small sound-insulated shed interior footprint: 36"x45" to house some dust collection equipment. At the air flow rates for effective dust

Re: insulating cinder block walls?

I am trying to imagine the mess from taking apart a mattress like this. You would need a lot of props -- at least one every other coil, and maybe one per coil.
