Looking at this site all morning ’That Roundhouse’. Ecohome of wood frame, cobwood and recycled window walls, straw-insulated turf roof; with solar power and wind turbine for electricity, compost toilet and reed beds for grey water. Turned down for planning permission several times. Plenty of pictures, history and updates.
