Posted By: bot de pailleOne idea, take unfired clay bricks and build a wall by dipping them in water and laying them as you would brickwork, without the mortar. as a finish, the wall can be plastered or finished with a damp cloth wiped over the surface, which will blend the bricks into one surface.
Posted By: bot de pailleFor the bricks and stud work, you could think about leaving the timber exposed and plastering up to the timber.James, your design sound very similair to what I am planning for my house. Where I will use a timber frame stud work with clay block infill, I will use reclaimed oak beams, oiled and leave them exposed.
Posted By: bot de pailleFor the clay plaster, remeber that you can add things to teh finish coat. Quartz or graines of crushed mother of pearl shells look nice on a wall that will have down lighting near them.

Layers of drywall (and associated airgaps) between the thermal mass and the room aren't going to do much for the performance?

Posted By: SteamyTeaOr is it a case of you get home from work and find the house hot. Two different solutions to those problems.
