FAQs - General Questions

Are natural building materials  difficult to source?

No - unless you are missing the point - The whole idea is to use as locally sourced natural material as possible...thus only if you are in or near a straw producing area then would it make sense to use straw bale. But if you are surrounded by abundant stone and sand but no clay for instance then one would opt for stone and or sandbag walls, etc. Natural buildings are often a hybrid of naturally occurring locally available materials - preferably from the site itself.

 

 

"E-WIRE" lights by Andy Horn

The Eco Design lighting range is made from local or recycled materials. Standing Floor Lamps, Desk Lamps, Pendant Lights and Chandeliers are available. The lamp stands are from locally moon phase harvested alien timber. Recycled car parts are used as bases. Various paper shades & low energy LED light bulbs provide good lighting and create a beautiful atmosphere.
