    Description

    Hi
    I'm a mum with two kids, doc and cats. My house is a bit small and a fixer upper but I have a decent size yard so was thinking of making a granny /art studio out of earth or something cheap. Then my eldest child could use it to to get away to. Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England is lovely and near some of the finest sites such as Chatsworth and the Peak District. It's great for climbers too!

    Natural home building in my backyard- I think rammed earth but the yard is two levels so I thought one portion for sleeping dug out of the higher level. I have no clue really and it rains a lot in this part of the U.K. . I guess someone handy with roofing/solar/insulation/electrics/plumbing/Paving/ digging/structures/rammed earth or cob style building or even timber framing.
