“A few months ago we raised a strawbale roundhouse with a reciprocal roof as part of our first Natural Building Workshop at Milkwood Farm. The plan for this building was to build a 6m internal diameter roundhouse, with a focus on using as much simple natural materials as we could manage. We seem to have now constructed an experimental building with load-bearing strawbale walls, natural mud and lime renders, doors and windows scrounged from junkyards and a living roof on top of a roundwood reciprocal roof frame.”

Note: I like everything except the toxic pressure treated wood foundation detail. Much better to use gravel bags for this step. The steel pipe top plate is a good idea.
