  • Description or summary of the book: The first highly illustrated, comprehensive guide to light straw clay - a high performance, low-impact, durable building material Light straw clay - straw mixed with clay slip - is a versatile, easy-to-use wall building material. Also called 'slip-straw,' its durability has been proven in beautiful, centuries-old buildings across Northern Europe and in modern high-performance buildings in North America.Building code compliant in the US and using 'waste' materials with high insulation value and excellent moisture handling qualities, it's both high-performance and low-impact. Yet until now, there has been no practical guide to using the material in a wide variety of construction and renovation projects.Distilling decades of experience, Essential Light Straw Clay Construction is a fully illustrated step-by-step guide, ideal for both the DIYer and professional designer and builder alike. It covers: Material specifications, performance, and when and where to use itEstimating quantities, costs, and sourcingIllustrated, step-by-step guidance for mixing and installation, including 'slip-chip' variationsDetail drawings for various wall systems including stud, timber, and pole framing, Larsen trusses, I-joists, plus retrofitsCode references, compliance, and best practiceFinishing and maintenance techniquesAdditional resources. Lydia Doleman, a licenced contractor, taught carpentry and natural building at Solar Energy International in Colorado and was lead ecological builder for Portland's City Repair project. She's created beautiful, high-performance, low-impact buildings across the Northwest, from Portland's first permitted straw bale home and The Rebuilding Center's cob entryway, to a 3,300-sq. f light clay straw brewery. She's written for The Last Straw Journal and Permaculture Activist and appeared on NBC News and HGTV's Off Beat America. Lydia lives in southern Oregon.
