Natural Building

We have extensive experience with ALL natural building types. After many years of building with straw bales and other natural materials, and being Project Architect for the Flemming College Sustainable Design course projects built in 2007 & 2008, we are now teaching our own natural building skills and information seminars and workshops.

Natural Buildings employs many sustainable building methods, and makes use of non-toxic, healthy, low-embodied energy materials like hemp straw bales, milk paints and soy stains, and local earthen plasters. Just the building type does not ensure a healthy home. You must specify all building materials, finishes, paints, stains, furnishings, cabinetry, etc. to follow the same guidelines as choosing building materials.
