Rachel’s house

Up a small path on a steep hillside at St Dogmaels, near Cardigan, Pembrokshire, Rachel Shiamh has built a beautiful straw bale house.

The bales are structural, meaning that they are not just infill to a timber frame: they actually carry the weight of floors and roof. There is a video tour round the house on the Permaculture web site. It won a the Grand Designs Eco Home of the year award.

    I love your house, i would like to buy land and build low impact house . Ive seen Tony Wrench house too. Can you recommend anyone who could build me a wooden house if i can find suitable land . Does it cost much ? I live in Aberaeron in Ceredigion. But have always dreamt of building my own low impact house and livin a simple life . Do you have any advise ?
