Woodland Home in Wales

The Woodland Home, built by Simon Dale and his family in Wales, beyond its Shire-like qualities, is a ‘low impact’ home designed to have minimal affects on the environment. Using straw-bale construction along with various other sustainable techniques using natural and renewable materials, Dale built his house set into a hill for a low visual profile and a decreased need for artificial heating and cooling. The house is fitted with such amenities as a compost toilet and a refrigerator cooled via air coming from the foundation. The Dale family has now begun work on a new home and is dedicated to teaching other people how to live as off-the-grid and as close to the land as possible.
