The project brief was to use locally sourced natural and recycled materials where possible. E.g. straw which was used for thermal insulation, re used shutter planks and boards combined with galvanised corrugated roofing sheets as cladding. Finishes had to be maintenance free. Rain water and sun energy harvesting; a low-tech bio-filtered grey water system and bottled gas achieved a low cost and sustainable off-the-grid residence. Budget was minimal and limited local skills necessitated an innovative ‘ structural frame farm shed’ approach to construction.
