This is the bed-living room of a wattle and daub oak framed gatehouse that has stood the test of time for over 500 years. The gatehouse was built in around 1467 in Bolton Percy, England. More living rooms at www.naturalhomes.org/natural-livingrooms.htm

Originally this blackhouses was built without a chimney. The smoke made its way through the roof keeping the thatch dry. The blackhouses were occupied until the early 1970s when the last few elderly residents moved to homes that didn’t need the annual maintenance of thatch and stonework. More about this kitchen and others at www.naturalhomes.org/natural-kitchens.htm

This is step two in a series of nine steps about building a straw bale house. This shows how the roundwood roof timbers support each other leaving a circle for a skylight. See the construction steps at www.naturalhomes.org/strawbale-roundhouse.htm

A natural builder will often reclaim good quality materials from homes at the end of their useful life. It's what the builders of these 16th century homes did when they took oak beams from Wherwell Abbey after it was disbanded by Henry VIII in 1530. www.naturalhomes.org/timeline/wherwellcottages.htm

This is Mary Steigerwald’s straw bale vault in Sangre de Cristos, NM, USA. It was built in 2007 when friends gathered to build the tiny house. With knowledge of basic straw bale building techniques and an understanding of arches they set to work on the tiny 12ft x 12ft bedroom. It's one of a collection of homes in winter at www.naturalhomes.org/natural-homes-in-winter.htm
