- Hi Everyone,
I'm new and not sure if I'm going to go the straw bale route or not. I
would like to however I am unable to do the work myself and it seems
all the resources are geared towards the DIY crowd. Does anyone know
of any contractor in NM or thereabouts who can build me a small 900-
100 sq ft house? Pref. ABQ.
Just looking for options at this point.

Sorry for the late reply; I haven't been keeping up with all my list
Your best bets to find contractors are either the Human Resource List
at The Last Straw Journal (http://www.thelaststraw.org/directory/) or
our Green Building Professionals Directory
Just search on "metro area =Albuquerque" in either one.
Best of luck!

- There is a company in Bayfield that does strawbale construction. I don't know their name, but will check. So, there are options if you're not interested in DIY.
ps. I just got my permit to do a strawbale in La Plata County. The county building commission requires that the submitted plans be either stamped by a structural engineer or done by an architect. I'm assuming the same is true of New Mexico.
