Absolute Legends.
Happy to say that the enthusiasm and community minded natural builders at this weeks workshop have opened more possibilities and choices. We’ve had the pleasure of helping leasowe farm moving their Roundhouse project along with James Henderson the walking encyclopaedia of natural building and Will Stanwix” That hempcrete guy “with such a font of knowledge.
Site dug clay was applied internally and hemp enriched lime externally and finishing of with lots of geeky clay plaster finishes.

Revisited a community project this week to lower a woven screen. Spent some time wandering through and looking at how nature is creeping in and helping blend our additions into the landscape.
