Roundwood Timber Framing: Building Naturally Using Local Resources (DVD) by Ben Law
This DVD perfectly accompanies the book of the same title. Ben presents the step-by-step design and build process for a locally sourced beautiful roundwood timber framed building, as well as showing other examples of builds including houses, a shop and a small outhouse. Highly informative and inspiring, the DVD also includes guidance for the creation of cordwood walls and rammed earth floors.
Since building his famous Woodland House from his own woodland, author Ben Law has evolved his own style of natural building, now tried and tested on many other builds across England. Ben has built houses, workshops, a classroom, lean-tos, a shop and a store to industrial specifications. Whilst this style’s origins can be found in traditional forms of building Ben has developed an entirely new vernacular using many new ideas and techniques.
“Stunning, enthralling and visually delectable throughout. The DVD shows Ben to be not only a skilled builder and woodsman but also a very clear and methodical communicator.” Graham Strouts, teacher of Permaculture and Natural Building at Kinsale College of Further Education.
