Just read the article, "Little Shop of Wonders" in No 63 Permaculture Magazine, by Maddy Harland. She talks about Ben Law's project building the Lodsworth Larder, a locally celebrated community shop. He built it with 4 other roundwood timber framers, as well as volunteers from the community, who they would buy a round of drinks for when the day was done. It is made of all local timber, soft and hard woods, insulated with wool, and requires no heat. It is also entirely locally owned. Pretty cool.

I believe I read this article as well - I've also watched the episode of a program called 'Grand Designs' in which Mr Law builds his sustainable woodland dwelling - and I have to say I get very excited when I think about the kinds of building projects he's involved in and the techniques and materials that he uses.

I believe he has a book on out on roundwood timber framing (the technique used for his house and from the shop I believe) and he has a book about building his woodland house.
 
I'm THIS CLOSE to ruling the world! Right after reading this tiny ad:
