Natural Building 2017-06-22T16:08:53+00:00

Project Description

During this module we will show how we used natural stone, clay, straw, lime and hemp on different projects on our finca. If you want to see more examples of natural buildings in the area, we will take you on a field trip.

A natural building involves a range of building systems and materials that place major emphasis on sustainability. Ways of achieving sustainability through natural building focus on durability and the use of minimally processed, plentiful or renewable resources, as well as those that, while recycled or salvaged, produce healthy living environments and maintain indoor air quality. Natural building tends to rely on human labor, more than technology.
