I'm very much interested in alternative building.  But I've always worried that straw bales would rot quickly.  I've leaned towards an earth-bermed earthbag dome.

Rick,
Were you able to upload your slide presentation to the AltExpo site, in case that helps this guy understand the straw bale building concept better. It's my understanding that, when built properly, you don't have a rotting problem.
