The Roundhouse

When i first Purchased the land i needed a building to live in for about 10 years while i develop the rest of the land. I built this 6m roundhouse for around £4000 and it took me a year on and off and about 1000 man hours.

Off Grid Micro Hydroelectric System

When purchased the land it was a blank slate. no buildings and no power. i started with some solar panels but soon realised that the welsh winter made solar only good for the summer. I had always planned to build a hydro electric system in the small stream. I set myself the challenge of designing and making a system that will power the house and workshop

Roundwood timber Framed Tool Shed

After i had built the roundhouse i was ready to move in full time but i had no place to put all my tools. i set to building a tool shed from the trees around me. myself and my friend Adam cut down some ash trees and started joining them up. two weeks later i had a 4.5m x 3m tool shed and it only cost about £200

Traditional Timber Framed Compost Toilet

When i first moved to the land i knocked together a make shift compost toilet, it had no door and was really just a few bits of wood, a tarp and a hole in the ground. I was single back when i built version one. I was lucky enough to meet the most amazing women, as tough as she is she did request a door. I decided to rebuild and make it a little bit nicer
