    hey guys

    havent been in for a while but i need some wisdom

    i have built a strawbale classroom with a bunch of kids and its great only trouble is that i am not great with dust and the walls are malting. the clay dust is amazingly fine and i feel a hundred years old when i leave the place cause im all clogged up

    i need to seal the walls enough to stop the dust but not enough to seal the walls and stop them breathing (this is less important for the inside walls though)

    also i need to seal the concrete floor somehow as well as it is impossible to sep case all thenfine dust gets caught in th stipples in the old slab can i polish it with a machine and then wax it or something

    a enviro as possible would be great

    any ideas

    Baleboy, try a casein (milk) based cover, or spray with a hot oil, like linseed oil, which should hold the dust in, or plaster with a lime/casein plaster....
