Straw Bale technical links
This report presents the findings of pilot work exploring straw bale house performance in resisting or controlling moisture. The field work was done in Quebec's Outaouais region, just north of Ottawa. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation helped fund this pilot work, which was carried out in May 1997.
This study investigated easy-to-deploy, low-cost sensing methods to determine the moisture content of straw bales.
