I want to build an eco-friendly house, what must I be aware of when looking for the appropriate plot
FAQs - General Questions

If you want to use natural materials then it would be of great advantage if a lot of natural materials would already be on site. On site rocks would e.g. be very helpful.

"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.
