Straw bale classroom at Bute Cottage Nursery School, Cardiff.
"This is an amazing project which has been developed in a clear and concise way. Natural Building Specialists have inspired enthusiasm in the staff, parents and pupils, and have worked tirelessly with volunteers throughout the project, including running a weekend course on straw bale building. Peter, the project manager has been vital, and is very committed to the way in which recycled materials can be used in this work"

Dave. Roundwood sweet chestnut frame for garden workshop, Sheffield.
"Many thanks to Pete from Natural Building Specialist for letting me work with him on my green garden workshop. Pete had lots of ideas and we worked out a cost effective approach to building the sweet chestnut frame for the structure. Pete’s skill with timber framing combined with his pragmatic approach and passion for wood made him a great pleasure to work with."
Shelagh. Roundwood summerhouse, Sheffield.
"Our new shelter is just what we wanted. The imaginative design takes account of the shape and style of the garden so that the structure fits in well. You have chosen very attractive pieces of timber and the whole work is both beautiful and robust. Moreover, it was all completed on schedule and within our budget. It will give us years of pleasure. Thank you"
