My name is Jack I’m 28 and a carpenter, I live in a town called Bridport in the south west coast of England. I’ve been a fan of your building books ever since a friend showed me a copy of Shelter in Spain when I was helping him build a cob house. I had never seen or heard of such structures before I went to help in 2003, He was using your book as a guide to build his house (which has been extremely successful); since then your other books have been and still are a true inspiration to my love of natural earth born structures. I have been working for a conservation building company for the last 5 years and want a change, something that will lead me to constructing unique and innovative buildings.
Keep up the good work.
This week, Jack sent a link to his website (https://www.think-in-the-round.co.uk), with a slideshow showing construction of this outdoor classroom at the Sustainability Centre in the South Downs National Park, U.K. The poles used in framing are all Port Orford Cedar, from within a few 100 yards of the building site.
PS Coincidentally, last month I wrote the forward to Ben Law’s forthcoming book, Roundwood Timber Framing.
