Construction Journal May 2003
Tony’s system was a steel-framed structure with straw bale filled walls. Even though it was our first choice, the steel frame was becoming an engineering problem. Again earthquakes. We were again thinking that straw bale was not an option for us when Bob Bolles from San Diego calls! We set up a meeting with him and Audrey Ruland. At this point it looked like Tony’s steel system would have us on hold for a while with engineering, we were getting impatient, so we decided to go with Bob, Audrey, and a wood frame.
