“being your own (have a go) architect”

This link went over well on Facebook, so I thought I'd repost here (thanks to the special person who showed it to me!)

A Low-Impact Woodland House
www.simondale.net/house
The house was built with maximum regard for the environment and by reciprocation gives us a unique opportunity to live close to nature. Being your own (have a go) architect is a lot of fun and allows you to create and enjoy something which is part of yourself and the land rather than, at worst, a mass produced box designed for maximum profit and convenience of the construction industry. Building from natural materials does away with producers profits and the cocktail of carcinogenic poisons that fill most modern buildings.

  1. Grand. I’ve sent the link to Dave! Perfect for his property. Picture one for him, Amethyst and the boys; a smaller one for me; and a tiny one for you to use when you visit!!
