I'm working on a small building in a coastal environment in South Texas. The Architect is contemplating adobe construction. Unfortunately, my search of the archives did not yield any results, as the archives are full of discussions regarding Adobe PDFs.

When assembled, the R-Value is only around R-6.0, or even less. If you believe all the propaganda these adobe salesmen are pushing, it would seem that an adobe wall can perform much better than that. Has anybody ever successfully modeled an adobe wall in eQUEST?
