Re Colorado strawbale workshops: check with Tom Luecke in Boulder. He's built a nice load-bearing straw bale studio in his back yard and has designed and built numerous other straw bale structures in Colorado. He does workshops also. Contact him at StrawCrafters, 3785 Moorhead Ave., Boulder, CO 80303, phone # 303-499-1334. >Is it structurally strong enough to have multi levels, say 3 or 4, or are you >limited to one level? Depends on design and construction method. Load-bearing style, where the bales do the structural work, is generally limited to one story. Post and beam could be any size - in theory - since the bales are just insulating infill wall panels.
