My friend built an entire barn out of hay bales. Great insulation.

We used Wheat straw, not hay. Essentially free, and baled them ourselves into extra tight bales. Bound the walls together simply by driving rebar pins top to ground.....Used scrap windows from a tear down house.....

wow!!! I'm impressed.Good On you Mexico. Straw bales won't burn. Go and try it. I tried to build with straw bale here in Yuma. Ha. Absolutely not done. No ASTM stamp on bales. County planners don't understand it. So sad that breaucrats control that which they don't understand. Looks like I'm moving to Mexico. I know, I'll become a "paracadista". Eleven million Mexicans can't be wrong. Right?

Straw WILL burn and often combusts itself if baled damp and stacked deep. IT IS very hard to ignite in bale form by itself. Range fires in wheat stubble are pretty scary. I never found time to go ask permission to do something on my own ground, so we tried a lot of stuff. :coolup:
