    Saw a couple of those which had been preserved on Uist and watched these guys working on this place, thatching. It was not far above freezing at this time and had snowed a little earlier.

    Love those type of houses.Might have to do some research,and see what opportunities are out there.I have had an interest in Brithdir Mawr (Where Tony Wrench first went and set up)over the years although havent visited as yet.Its amazing what people can achieve,so thanks for the inspiration.I've recently been watching some of these YT vids,which are interesting...

    What a fantastic thread. I love looking at how others have done things. I would love to build a round house out of wood from the forest and the earth for cob but it would be too conspicuous where I am so my place looks very normal and similar to the other structures. Hiding in plane sight as it where. figgy

    just above Holmfirth.

    I hate this sort of thing. We have a couple just down the road who have built an 'eco' house. There is only two of the and the place is huge. There probably have 6 or 7 bedrooms with en-suite etc.

    I think there is 'eco' and then there is appropriate. I prefer appropriate.

    Would be good to see a cross section.If the turves are laid only on wood how long would they last,how are they fixed.Weight wet would be a consideration.I love turf roofs but have wondered about weight and water..loads of water in Wales,lest one morning wake up in muddy pond.

    They are all truly amazing. Have dreamed of building one of those types of houses for ages, But I know there are too many obstacles in this country
