Local materials

Where possible I want to use local natural materials that have not been overly processed/transformed.

Above:  My nephews delighting in the huge mounds of earth brought by a neighbour who was doing building work and who had heard that I was in need of material to do torchis.  Where I live, the subsoil is clay.

The hay was already here in the barn when I arrived and I found a local organic farmer who produces organic straw.  I have bought wood to replace beams and battens from the local saw mill who do not treat the wood.
