Having drawn inspiration from many sources, including Lloyd Kahn, Christopher Alexander, Christopher Day, and Simon Dale, we have been involved in a number of natural building projects.

Our own classroom, which is a timber frame with strawbale infill, strawbale insulated green roof, earth plaster and larch cladding; a  roundhouse with reciprocal roof and composting toilets at the Quarries Farm in Bangor, a short spell volunteering on the Community Hub at Lammas, and here in our own cottage renovation, as well as numerous other bits and pieces.

The ethos is simple – use natural materials where possible, with low embodied energy; and use materials sourced as locally as possible – on site where at all possible.

Reuse, upcycle, recycle, freecycle stuff where you can, and generally consider the impact of the way that we build.

Building design is important – not for us the sterile, rigid, hard edged; we believe in human scale environments designed to enhance the wellbeing of their occupants or users, and at the same time being efficient and well made.
