Well, I don't see any other responses to this post. Yep, people do build out of straw (not hay). Strawbales are cheap, nontoxic, an agricultural waste product, easy for non-building professionals to use, and provide great heat and sound insulation. Although there seem to be more strawbale houses in the southwest, there are several in our area (North Carolina). There is a strawbale internet list, a national strawbale newsletter, and at least one good book on strawbale building, available from Real Goods, or from most larger bookstores I think.
