This article is being re-published here without permission! This is straight from The Last Straw, Sept 2006 edition. This is one of LSA's favorite magazines and if you are interested in building with natural materials, there is great information in here about the latest and greatest. We are republishing with the intention of promoting the Last Straw (http://thelaststraw.org/) , and take absolutely zero credit for any of the content. Also, the article is about/by Wayne Bingham, a local Architect in both SLC and Teton Valley who has designed/built with straw bales for many years (http://www.wjbingham.com/). He became one of Lindsey Love's mentors through a roundabout turn of events.
