Architeco Strawbale HouseDesigned to have minimal impact on the site, this 2 bedroom dwelling is designed for strawbale construction. The construction and siting allows reforestation work to be progressed, with land management based on Permaculture. The living space has a masonry fireplace at its centre to provide the house’s only heating, with invasive rhododendrons being turned to charcoal as they are cleared. A battery bank provides storage for the electricity generated from the renewable energy system.

This really is low-cost low-impact living!
