Bodrifty Farm

This is the roundhouse at Bodrifty Farm in Cornwall, England. All of Britain was once covered with roundhouses; a simple shape enclosing the largest space for the least use of materials.

The Roundhouse is a wonderful and authentic replica of a Celtic chief’s thatched roundhouse and is one of the only structures of its kind in the World. The Roundhouse offers the unique chance to step back in time into Cornwall’s and England’s distant Celtic past.

Gualala Tiny Cob home

This wonderful tiny cob home was built by apprentices of the SunDog School of Natural Building in Northern California, USA.

The cute little cob cottage features a little wood fired Rocket Mass Heater for heating, 12 volt off-grid electricity with USB and automotive outlets and views of the redwood forest.

Alan Griffith's Bines Green Cottage

Like many others when Alan Griffiths saw Ben Law's cottage in Prickly Nut Woods he fell in love with the architecture and its sustainability credentials. Like Ben's own home, all the structural wood and the cedar shingles were grown locally

The house is on a working dairy farm on the edge of the South Downs National Park, this unique roundwood timber, straw bale and cedar shingle holiday cottage is the perfect spot to escape and unwind.

Cardigan, Pembrokeshire, Wales

Rachel lived off-grid in a shed in her woodland in Wales, carrying water from a local spring, using candlelight, a gas stove and a compost loo. She loved it, but the shed was small, so she built a straw bale extension onto it with the help of some friends. From this humble start she has built what has become an iconic home winning the 2009 Grand Designs eco-house award.

Quiet Earth Retreat is a two storey load bearing straw bale house with open plan kitchen-living room and an upstairs large studio which can offer a luxury bedroom or space for a group. Stunning views over the Welsh landscapes and beaches.
