I want find info about straw bale, adobe and other types of construction beyond the "stick house" that is still so much the norm.
There are quite a few good books on the subject. Worldcat.org has a comprehensive list available at http://worldcat.org/search?q=su%3AEcological+houses.&qt=hot_subject. These and the other titles on the list are available through your local library, either in their collection or through their interlibrary loan service.
A couple of particularly good titles are:
Chiras, Daniel D. 2004. The new ecological home: the complete guide to green building options. Chelsea green guides for homeowners. White River Junction, Vt: Chelsea Green Pub. Co. (http://worldcat.org/oclc/54350452)
Snell, Clarke, and Tim Callahan. 2005. Building green: a complete how-to guide to alternative building methods : earth plaster, straw bale, cordwood, cob, living roofs. New York: Lark Books. (http://worldcat.org/oclc/56614263)
For items on straw bale building specifically, see http://worldcat.org/search?q=straw+bale+building&=Search&qt=owc_search.
