Another hobbit house needs willing hands

Low Impact Building Opportunity :: 1st-7th August

I have recently been involved in working on another low impact roundhouse in Pembrokeshire. The building was started by Tony Wrench and is currently in the finishing stages. It belongs to our good friend Kate and she could do with some help with the final finishing stages so her and her daughter can get moved in. It'll be a good oportunity to see lots of aspects of a building like this whilst getting a summer holiday in a lovely spot. There is a large woodland next door with rivers and a gorgeous waterfall (Kate is a member of Growing Heart Coop who manage the woodland). There is plenty of camping space (bring your tents) and Kate can provide food given a contribution towards the cost.

The work will include :

Levelling out land around the house and laying stone

Putting in drainage pipes

Guttering on the roundhouse

Making wooden doors and loo top for compost toilet

Finishing off white washing the walls

Making internal walls and sink unit

Helping construct the skylight for the middle of the roof
