Got a chance today to inquire about a log framed with straw bale insulated house. Do you live in a straw bale house? and if so, what do you like about and what don't you like about it. First off, is the insulating value simlar to similar 2x6 construction with pink battt insulation? What is the longevity of the staw in the house before it breaks down or decays or whatever? What about bugs that might live within the straw? Isn't that a potential problem? Also, what if one wanted to remove the straw at some point and reinsulate with fiberglass batt insulation or styrofoam sheet? Must be a bitter mess to try removing straw from inside the wall for any reason???
