The author designed, built and, with his partner Faith, lives in a simple, turf-covered, wood and cobwood, low impact roundhouse. He wrote a book Building a Low Impact Roundhouse (Permanent Publications) to describe the process. In the fifteen years that have elapsed since the roundhouse becoming known about, Tony has been asked several times to run and supervise courses in which participants build a simple roundhouse over two to four weeks. In this book he uses the experience of those courses and other builds to produce a thorough 'How To' manual covering Site, Design and Planning, Drainage and Stem Wall, the Henge, the Reciprocal Frame roof, Walls, and Roof covering. From the words, diagrams and over one hundred colour photographs here, you will be able to design and build your own simple roundhouse. Preferably in a group, because that is more fun. The tips in this book will enable you to build a simple roundhouse very cheaply and quickly. This manual should be a part of your toolkit.
