although i agree with everything else in the post, i do not agree with that... you can get bales for $2/ea - especially in quantity.. all yo do is stack, compress(maybe) and stucco, in and out... if you compare that to a standard framing.. the total cost is much cheaper, its already insulated, and it has a good mass.
