This cute playhouse was built with roundwood oak that most builders would have rejected but actually in the hands of a natural builder makes for one of the most desirable little buildings you could ever hope for.
This is a 9 step picture guide to building a tiny oak playhouse with a green roof.

Evolutionary Architecture: that's where you make plans, but if a better idea comes along you change them. It's how SunRay Kelly builds his homes and why they look so wonderful.
This is one of many natural buildings with names like Earth House and 'the Yogurt', a cross between a yoga studio and a yurt, built by SunRay Kelly.

Like the residents rather than the visitors, this Icelandic church is well connected to the earth and covered in turf. The church was built in 1884 and was the last turf church built in this style.
This is an Icelandic torfþak (turf roof) on a church in Hof, a small village in the southeast of Iceland.

This studio and apartment was designed to get the best out of the sun using adobe to store energy and straw bales to insulate the home in the cold nights.

This beautiful self-built natural home is in Argentina. It can be a big leap of faith making the decision to build your home using natural materials. That's why we keep a growing collection of naturally built homes, old and new, that you can rent for a holiday to help you understand what sort of home you want to build.
A good way to decide what type of natural home you would like to build is to spend some time living in one.

A home that looks like it is part of the earth makes it appear inviting and safe. It's pattern No.168, ‘Connection to the Earth’ from the design book 'A Pattern Language'.
A birch bark green roof like this will last about 40 to 50 years.
