My husband and I also attended the 2006 Solar Home Tour and enjoyed chatting
with the homeowners and subcontractors. We are planning to build a house
west of Austin using Rastra. Does anyone have experience constructing a
house with this material? I've read conflicting reports on its insulative
properties. Anecdotal evidence say R-30 to R-40, but actual Oak Ridge Lab
tests show closer to R-10! Big difference!
